Here is a photo of Gilbert Baker's Key West rainbow flag. In 2003, to commemorate the rainbow flag’s 25th anniversary, Baker created this 1.25 mile rainbow flag that stretched down Key West's Duval street from the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic Ocean in a sea-to-sea proclamation of pride and diversity.

A record of over 50,000 people from across Taiwan and abroad marched though Taipei last Saturday to push for marriage equality in Taiwan as the island marked its 10th annual LGBT Pride event.
The organizer said a record number of over 3,000 foreign LGBT supporters from 23 countries joined the event, which carried the theme “Marriage Revolution — Equal Rights to Marriage, Diversity in Partnership.”
Hong Kong pop star Gigi Leung and singer Anthony Wong, who came out publicly this year, showed up to express their support for LGBT rights.
“Love is gender-blind, everyone is entitled to the right to enjoy happiness,” Leung said was quoted as saying in the Taipei Times. “I can feel the joy of marriage after I got married last year, and I hope that everyone can enjoy the same degree of happiness as I do, regardless of their sexual orientation.”
Check out some photos and a video from Taiwan's 2012 LGBT Pride event.

After 4 years, 8 months and ten days with Jeffrey, Andy finally summed up the courage to pop the question. Everything was going well until Andy's parents showed up. Will Andy freeze up? Will he disappoint Jeffrey by not acknowledging him?
I feel good now. There's nothing like starting the day with something sweet. Watch the 5 minute 'Celebrate Taiwan Pride' short film after the jump.....

Check out this lovely promo video for Pink Dot Utah. The event held at Salt Lake City is on September 22 this year. Pink Dot Utah was inspired by the Singapore Pink Dot. Last year it attracted a crowd of 3000. Fingers crossed that they are able to double or triple that figure this year.......

Finally something from One Million Moms. A bit slack if you ask me.
Oreo (Kraft Foods) is joining others in supporting Gay Pride. This month is LBGT Pride month and only time will tell if Oreo's support will continue. The company announced its support for same sex marriage on the Oreo Cookie Facebook page with a picture of a rainbow version of their famous cookie. Oreo's Facebook thread read, "Proudly Support Love!" with a graphic that read "June 25| Pride."

Oreo is one of the most successful brands on Facebook with over 26.9 million likes. Tonight Oreo proved it could be one of the boldest, too. Around 8 p.m. Eastern, Oreo posted it's Gay Pride Oreo featuring a six-layer cookie stuffed with rainbow-coloured filling, with the date June 25 and the word “Pride”. The caption reads “Proudly support love!”
The response among Oreo’s 26.9 million fans has been fiercely divided, with many commenting that they planned to stop purchasing Oreos. “I'm never eating Oreos again. This is just disgusting,” one commenter said. “Unliking page and the rest of the ‘kraft’ family products... i will not support a company with these views,” wrote another. But the post also drew a massive amount of support in the form of 14,800 shares and 87,000 Likes as of this writing.
C'mon guys....Let's support Oreo by liking their facebook page.
