Huge victory !!! For several years, we have been waiting to find out which Asian country is going to legalize the equal marriage first and a great victory has taken place in Taiwan.
A nice little story recently happened in Taiwan. Jennifer Chang, who works for the HSBC bank in Taiwan, has run into the refusal of her parents to attend her wedding. Her boss then decided to replace her dad at the ceremony.
While Taiwan could be the first Asian country to legalize marriage equality, a video of a father accepting his lesbian daughter is viral.
A very important step has just been taken in Taiwan to get the equal marriage.
The Progressive Democratic Party and the Conservative Party have introduced before the national legislature bills to legalize the equal marriage and adoption for same-sex couples in Taiwan.
In 2013, India has criminalized homosexual relationships again and it is now possible to measure the impact of this policy change, particularly in terms of arrests.
I confess that we are concerned over the situation in Indonesia after the publication of a report denouncing the attitude of the Indonesian Government and its policy towards the LGBT community.
Following the refusal of the University of Guangdong not to give diplomas to two lesbian students, considering that their marriage is against the rules of the University, over 180 LGBT people around the world have written an open letter to call the university president to create a tolerant environment study.
In September 2015, I told you about Chen Qiuyan aka Qui Bai, a Chinese lesbian who had filed a complaint against the Ministry of Education after discovering that her university textbooks still classified homosexuality as a "disorder". Good news since we learned today that a Beijing court has accepted to hear the case.
In Taiwan, the tickets whose proceeds will be donated to an LGBT organization, are now available!
