Taiwan becomes the first country in Asia to legalize gay marriage

Taipéi / Taiwan has become the first country in all of Asia to recognize the marriage of homosexual couples. The Taiwanese parliament approved this Friday the legalization of same-sex marriage, with 66 votes in favor and 27 against.

 

Taiwanese parliamentarians have debated three different proposals, two of them referring to same-sex couple unions, while the government presented another that legalized homosexual marriage.

The latter was the only one of the three proposals to be debated by the activists of the LGBT movement and which was finally approved. It was also the only project that offered limited adoption rights to homosexual couples.

Taiwanese president, Tsai Ing-Wen, has also shown support for the law and has asked legislators to “show the world that love wins”.

The Taiwanese Parliament had until May 24th to regularize the unions between same-sex couples, a deadline brought by the Constitutional Court of the island, which in a historical judgement of 2017 considered that the prohibition of homosexual marriage was unconstitutional.
