As reported by media, Taiwan Parliament has taken a historic step by legalising same-sex marriage.
“In 2017, the island’s constitutional court ruled that same-sex couples had the right to legally marry.
Parliament was given a two-year deadline and was required to pass the changes by 24 May.”
The country’s top court ruled in 2017 that preventing same-sex couples from getting married was unconstitutional. It gave the government two years to introduce appropriate legislation or see a marriage equality law enacted automatically.
The significant step is in the direction of gender equality.
