Taiwan Could Become the First Country in Asia to Legalise Gay Marriage



Taiwan could become the first country in Asia to legalise same-sex marriage


There are 48 countries in Asia, but same-sex marriage isn’t legal anywhere on the continent.

Taiwan would be the first.


Last year, Taiwan’s first female president, Tsai Ing-Wen, was sworn in. Having spoken out in support of LGBT rights, she’s expected to back the proposal. 

Although, this won't be guaranteed it's presented to Parliament.

An attempt to legalise gay marriage under a previous government failed in 2012. 

Support has grown steadily in recent years. In July 2015, we posted about changes in attitude amongst the population. 

In a Macdonald's commercial aired in Taiwan earlier this year, a son is seen coming out to his father over coffee. The video was slammed by anti-gay campaigners, but it was welcomed both by the LGBT community and by the wider public. 








Things are looking hopeful. We’ll keep you updated.
