Taiwan Legalizes Same-Sex Marriage

Taiwan Legalizes Same-Sex Marriage Passage of the legislation means that Taiwan is the first Asian country to legalize gay marriage.

The bill goes into effect on May 24.

Taiwan has a large gay community and hosts Asia's biggest gay pride festival.

Despite this, the issue of gay marriage has divided the country.

A November referendum saw 67% of voters reject same-sex marriage.

Proponents of the bill call its passage a "historic moment." Victoria Hsu, TAPCPR, via CNN
