Twenty eight same sex couples demanded marriage licenses in Taipei on Friday.
Gay Star News reports:
As part of a campaign seeking same-sex marriage to be legalized in Taiwan, 28 same-sex couples – accompanied by activists from the Taiwan Alliance to Promote Civil Partnership Rights (TAPCPR) – walked into Zhongzheng District Household Registration Office in Taipei on Friday and attempted to register their unions. Taiwan’s Civil Code stipulates that a marriage must be a union between a man and a woman. The Taipei Times reported that the clerks ‘took the applications with a friendly attitude’ and apologized that the ‘computer system would not allow same-sex couples to make marriage registrations.’
Could Taiwan be the first Asian nation to embrace marriage equality?
