Watch: The Largest LGBT PrideRally Asia Has Ever Seen

In the largest LGBT Pride march Asia has ever seen, more than 80,000 people took to the streets of Taipei over the weekend to show their support for marriage equality in Taiwan.

Those attending the “Fun Together” parade wore costumes and draped their bodies with rainbow flags as they marched down the streets together.

“Homosexuality won’t destroy the world, ignorance will,” read one of the placards, according to reports by The China Post.

Taiwan LGBT Parade, who organised the vent, claimed around 82,000 people took part in the march, an improvement from the 78,000 attendees the previous year.

As support for marriage equality in Taiwan grows, the nation’s President Tsai Ing-wen reinstated her support for marriage equality, posting on Facebook that: “Today, there is a rainbow in Taiwan.”

“Love should allow people to feel free, to feel equal and to feel strong,” Tsai continued in her Facebook post.

“Although my role has changed, my belief has not changed,” she concluded.

Imagine what would happen if Peking had it's way and took over Taiwan.
