Taipei, Aug. 12 (CNA) Taiwanese organizers of the WorldPride 2025 will not hold the event because the group behind the global event, InterPride, did not accept the use of "Taiwan" in the event's name, they said in a statement Friday.

All previous WorldPride events have been named based on their host cities, including WorldPride Copenhagen-Malmo 2021 and Sydney WorldPride 2023, but Kaohsiung was trying to set a new precedent by calling its event WorldPride Taiwan 2025. (Click here to read the updated story)
