Taiwan might be the first place in Asia to have marriage equality, and we think that's incredible
So many amazing things have happened in America over the past few years, and it’s so incredible to see that kind of growth throughout the world, as well. It’s just been reported that Taiwan is starting to fight for marriage equality, and we can’t be happier for those in the LGBT community to watch this change occur.
One of the things that the Democratic Progressive Party, under President Tsai Ing-wen, is currently fighting to change is the wording in the way that Taiwan defines a marriage.
As of right now, LGBT couples also don’t receive any parental rights, which is something else that community members are hoping to fix. Taiwan in general is known for being pretty progressive already, but making these changes would be such a big step forward.
And just like that, Mei-nu rose to hero-status, especially for fellow Democrats. We’re so proud of Taiwan for making this issue heard, and for being fearless when it comes to changing and updating laws.
