Vietnam gay pride paradeBY SARAH TOCE

Vietnam is set to undertake their first-ever gay pride parade this weekend, according to the AFP. While the sanctity of marriage between same-sex couples is currently prohibited, Vietnam is considering marriage equality. If momentum occurs on this subject, Vietnam will be the first country in Asia to take this step toward equality.

“The parade is confirmed,” project developer Tam Nguyen told AFP. “We are expecting around 150 people. It is not the first gay pride event in Asia but we think it is the first in Vietnam.”
