A participant holds up a rainbow flag during a lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) event on a street in Hanoi October 27, 2013. Several hundred people gathered at the event to call for the legalization of same-sex marriages ahead of November 5, when the issue will be discussed by top law makers at the National Assembly. Vietnam has 1,65 million LGBT people with three percent of the population aged from 15 to 59, according to Le Quang Binh, the director of the Institute for Studies of Society, Economy and Environment and the organiser of the event.
