Same-sex Taiwanese couples marry in Christian church


“Although the draft bill legalizing same-sex marriage in Taiwan is still pending, three couples in Taichung who couldn’t wait any longer tied the knot on Tuesday in front of crowds of cheering supporters at the Luce Memorial Chapel on Tunghai University’s campus. The vows mark what are believed to be the first Christian same-sex weddings in Taiwan.”

“The day before, over 20,000 fans showed up to a free concert held by Taiwanese pop star A-mei in support of gay rights. A-mei, a long-advocate of LGBT rights in Taiwan, paid the NT$3 million from her pocket to cover the costs.”
