Celebrate Loving Day with us! June 19 Taipei
What is loving day?
Loving Day is a celebration of overcoming prejudice and encouraging multicultural community. It brings people together from all walks of life.
Loving Day celebrates, the decision by the Supreme Court in the US in the case of Loving v. Virginia. Mr. and Mrs. Loving were a couple who's marriage was deemed a felony by the state of Virginia because they were of different "races." They were arrested for their "crime" which was punishable by a minimum one year in prison. The court case eventually made it to the Supreme Court where the court ruled in favour of Mr. and Mrs. Loving and made interracial marriage legal in the United States. This landmark civil rights case was decided on June 12th,1967.
All around the world in cities, town, and in public spaces, and peoples homes people are getting together and celebrating Loving Day.
We're starting off with food at Little New York Pizzeria (closest mrt Ganggian station) and followed up by drinks at BRKLYN bar at ATT Fun, and probably some clubbing after that.
