Taiwan Pride LGBTQ rainbow

According to CNA (China News Agency) over 47,000 viewers logged on to this year’s Taiwan Pride Online. The online event this year called on better understanding of the LGBTQ+ community on the island. This year’s events were held online due to the pandemic, despite the island having one of Asia’s lowest numbers of COVID19 transmissions. Over 130,000 people turned up at last year’s Taiwan Pride Parade which was held in person.

This year Taiwan Pride was held online in response to current COVID-19 restrictions and a recent surge in coronavirus cases in Taiwan over the summer. 

That said, Taiwan remains one of the region’s and the world’s most successful in keeping the pandemic under control. The island has now only 1 percent of its earlier peak cases.

Taiwan has also led LGBTQ+ rights in the region. It became in 2019 the first Asian country to legalize same-sex marriage. However, according to Taiwan News, organizers said in a press conference that things have not changed since the change in the law. They urge for a need to improve social perception of the LGBT+ community, even if “there is now a more welcoming social atmosphere”.

Early this year during June Pride Month, Google released a series of videos highlighting the issues for the LGBTQ+ community in the region. It included a video of the plight of a Taiwanese gay couple, Stephan and Jovy.  The video showed how there was still some way for full acceptance in Taiwan due to conservative family values common in the region, including in Japan.

CNA(China News Agency)によると、今年の「台湾プライド」のオンラインイベントには、合計で47,000人以上の視聴者が参加しました。今年のオンラインイベントでは、台湾のLGBTQ+コミュニティへの理解を深めることを呼びかけました。台湾はCOVID19の感染者数がアジアで最も少ない島のひとつですが、今年はパンデミックの影響でオンラインでのイベントが行われました。昨年の台湾プライドパレードには、13万人以上の人々が参加しました。




今年の6月のプライド月間では、Googleは地域のLGBTQ+コミュニティの問題を強調する一連のビデオを公開しました。その中には、台湾のゲイカップル、ステファンとジョビーの窮状を描いたビデオも含まれていました。  このビデオでは、日本を含む地域では保守的な家族観が一般的であるため、台湾では完全に受け入れられるまでにはまだ時間がかかることが示されています。

You can also purchase this international travel cover policy online by using your current credit card. All you need to do should be to enter the travel information and you can start to see the plans side-by-side. Merely find the package that suits your financial budget and needs and after that use your bank credit card to buy them.
