A huge same sex wedding was held in Taipei yesterday to push for marriage equality legislation.

Focus Taiwan reports:

A mass wedding that attracted over 1,000 people was held in downtown Taipei on Saturday, amid a push by local civic groups to legalize all forms of civil partnerships, including same-sex marriage, in Taiwan… The alliance also hoped that the banquet would drive up support for an amendment that would legalize gay marriage, civil partnerships, and the adoption of children by diverse families in Taiwan. The proposed legislation is set to be submitted to the Legislative Yuan later this month.

If passed, it would make Taiwan the first Asian country to have marriage equality. Any Taiwan watchers have an idea how likely it is to pass?
