Written by scott on August 31st, 2013

Gay Wedding - HandsLGBT activists in Taiwan are planning a huge gay wedding banquet as part of the push for marriage equality in the country.

Pink News reports:

Over 800 activists have pledged to support the “Taiwan Alliance to Promote Civil Partnership Rights” campaign this September, in a bid to press for the legalisation of same-sex unions. Following the recently upheld same-sex marriage of a transgender couple earlier this month, gay activists in Taiwan have announced a ‘wedding banquet’ campaign to push for an amendment to the country’s Civil Code. The alliance said it would host a rally in front of the presidential office in Taipei on 7 September.

    I’m a gay Taiwanese male and been married to my American husband for over one year now, we have a marriage certificate from USA and in Taiwan means – a piece of toilet paper. That’s why, we’ve decided to leave Taiwan and go to USA now that it is recognized at the national level. Taiwan is a follower, not a leader in any form; especially in gay rights.
