Taiwan Celebrates Top Court Ruling in Favour of Same-Sex Marriage
The highest court ruled Wednesday that current laws preventing members of the same-sex from marrying violated their right to equality and were unconstitutional. It gave parliament two years to amend existing laws or pass new ones.
There’s still a long road to go, fraught with plenty of uncertainties, but Taiwan is one step closer to being the first place in Asia to legalize gay marriage. It’s a win for the world, and we’ll take it.
