驕傲無所不在 Pride is Everywhere
男同志 Brotherly Love
I am proud to be gay.
Being gay is a kind of blessing. It allows us to grow wings, to understand love, and to become angels to all those who haven’t found their way out.
I’m Jerry, mixed Taiwanese and Mexican, and I grew up in Taipei. The Pride Parade is something that I look forward to each year. I remember the first parade when I had to wear a mask so that my junior high classmates wouldn’t recognize me. Now I proudly join this colorful carnival with my best friend Jack. Taipei really is one of the more progressive cities in Asia. I hope its government and laws will soon catch up to the spirit of the people. Pride Parade focuses on a different issue and community each year. This year it joins hands with TIQFF to give us plenty of excitement and plenty of reasons to be proud!
Just call me Jack. As a gay man, I don’t have the pressures of having children like my straight friends. I feel liberated in many ways, to not have to conform to the traditions of society. But perhaps this lack of responsibility is also the reason for my feelings of insecurity. Nothing lasts forever. Always searching for the next Mr. Right. Maybe this imperfection is a beauty in itself. To find and enjoy the little grains of good then piece them together into my own happiness. I volunteer for the Pride Parade every year with Emmanuel. This year we will walk the parade under the brightness of the sun, then enjoy the films at TIQFF in the darkness of the theater. I think being gay is a kind of blessing. It allowed us to grow wings, to understand love, and to become angels to all those who haven’t found their way out.
