Put Taiwan on the World Map!
HELP Taiwan be represented at the 2017 New York Gay Pride Parade, coming up on June 25th!
Let’s get Taiwan represented in this year’s New York Pride Parade and celebrate Taiwan’s high court ruling that same-sex marriage is legal. This historic ruling makes Taiwan the first and only country in Asia to legalize gay marriage. It’s been a hard won battle especially for equal rights activist Mr. Chi Chia-Wei, who has been central in the fight to legalize same-sex marriage in Taiwan. On this momentous occasion, we have invited, Mr. Chi to join us, in recognition of his contributions to the movement. Also, did you know that Taiwan also hosts Asia’s largest gay pride parade annually in October? So let’s make sure that Taiwan participates in this year’s New York Gay Pride Parade.
Last year, with the help of many generous donors like you, we were able to put together a self-made float for the parade. This year, to celebrate the fact that Taiwan is on the forefront of same-sex rights in Asia and the passage of same-sex marriage, we have reserved an even bigger float. We need your help even more than ever before to make it happen this year!
Registration Fee: $1000
Sound System $2000
Mr. Chi: $3000
Total: $11000 (minus GoFundMe Fee)
GoFundMe Fee: $550 (5%)
Information below is required by GoFundMe.
The fund raised will be deposited to the account of Taiwanese American Council and handled by Borcheng Hsu, the parade's organizer. The fund will then be paid out to the items listed above from the cost of float to flyers, etc.
Thank you again for making this possible.
