TAIWAN: On International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia on Friday (May 17), Taiwan has become the first country in Asia to legalise same-sex marriage.
Taiwan president Tsai Ing-wen’s Democratic Progressive Party pushed through its law in a vote on Friday.
Prior to the vote, Tsai tweeted:”Good morning #Taiwan . Today, we have a chance to make history & show the world that progressive values can take root in an East Asian society.
Today, we can show the world that #LoveWins .”
Legislators voted between three separate bills on Friday, but ultimately pushed ahead with the DPP’s law defining same-sex unions as marriages. The bill was considered the most progressive of the three.
