Not long ago, a serious mass shooting broke out at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida. To pray for the victims who died or were injured, Taiwan’s Breeze Group delivered a special message using LED wall lights outside Breeze Songgao department store and on the wall-mounted televisions at each of its other branch stores. The message reads: “More love, less hate! #lovewins,” calling on people to have more love and less hate, and to bring hope to the world.
With the theme of “Embracing diverse love,” the Breeze Group is holding an LGBT-friendly Rainbow Festival, the first of its kind in Taiwan, at the group’s branch stores in Taipei. All branch stores are offering special discounts and prize draws.
The Breeze group also held a Rainbow Carnival at Breeze Xinyi department store on Sunday last week. There was a DJ show, a male dance show as well as an outdoor concert hosted by entertainer Mickey Huang, where free drinks were available.
