Taiwan's Parliament Legalises Same-Sex Marriage

In a first for Asia, lawmakers in Taipei have approved a bill which enshrines same-sex marriage into law, as well as securing tax, insurance and child custody rights for same-sex couples. LGBTQ activists have campaigned for two decades for marriage rights, which were first approved by Taiwan's Constitutional Court in 2017. The court gave parliament a deadline of 24 May 2019 to make the necessary legal changes.
