‘Corona-freed’ Taiwan celebrates gay pride

Rainbow-masked revelers paraded through Taiwan’s capital, Taipei, Saturday, celebrating equality gains since it allowed same-sex marriages last year, despite objections from religious conservatives. President Tsai Ing-wen, re-elected to a second term last January, urged the country via social media Saturday to embrace “love, tolerance and a better Taiwan.” The mingling went ahead after 200 days in a row without a single recorded local infection, thanks to Taiwan’s early 2020 response that saw arrivals from rival China and other origins tested and quarantined, limiting Taiwan’s toll to 7 deaths.
