Taipei, Taiwan, 2019

What makes this photo special to you?

In 2019, Taiwan was the first country in Asia to legalize same-sex marriage. My husband and I, both Brazilians living in Melbourne, Australia, decided to go to Taipei for the first pride march after the same-sex marriage legalization. The city was colorful, welcoming and super friendly. It was one of the most amazing experiences. Taiwan is an amazing country! Hope to come back soon.
