| Synopsis |
In May 2017, Taiwan's Constitutional Court ruled in favor of legalizing same-sex marriage, setting a 2-year deadline for the legislature to make new or amend existing laws to make it a reality. This landmark ruling is setting the stage for the island to become the first country in Asia to do so. But the quest for marriage equality has not been easy. Anti-gay groups have been using sex and gender education as a platform to sway public opinions. Pressured by anti-gay groups, lawmakers have yet not introduced any bill or proposal to legalize same-sex marriage, afraid that they would lose votes in the upcoming elections. Taiwan's fight for marriage equality continues.
