About TAS

The mascot of TAS is ˇ§Xiao Qiangˇ¨, aka cockroach. The slogan of TAS is ˇ§Kirigami, kirigami, tashi tashi tashi,ˇ¨deriving from the homophone of TAS as ˇ§ta shiˇ¨ in Taiwanese (literally tread to death). Xiao Qiang represents the status quo of adolescentand sexuality issues in Taiwan: marginalized minority, unseen and bearing contempt in the society, but Xiao Qiang always has inexhaustible energy. Fighting against challenges in one era after another, the only goal of Xiao Qiang is to live. The colorful icon also represents the multicultural façade of the society.
