Taiwan Court Ruled In Favour Of A Gouvernement Organization Which Refused To Reconize A Gay Couple

A gay couple had launched a challenge in a Taiwanese court after a government organization refused to register their marriage but, unfortunately, the court ruled in favour of the organization.

The court indeed judged that the organization had not violated the law which regards the marriage as a union between a man and a woman.

"The government is outdated and makes no progress over the years. This case concerns not just me but the welfare of all homosexual people. This is unfair and I will appeal," gay rights activist Chi Chia-wei, who filed a complaint with his partner, said.

Chi has tried for already almost thirty years to make change the things but currently without success.

"We regret and are deeply saddened by the ruling ... which shows that Taiwan stands still after 20 years while the United States and European countries are moving to support gay marriages," Taiwan LGBT Family Rights Advocacy said in a statement.

"We urge the court to face and acknowledge the importance of marital equal rights and return homosexual citizens their entitled rights to get married."
