Taiwan Parliament Okays Same Sex Marriage

Taiwan’s Parliament has become the first in Asia to legalise same-sex marriage following a vote on Friday.

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.

Hundreds of gay rights supporters gathered in the rain outside the Parliament building in the capital, Taipei, to await the landmark ruling.

There were shouts of joy and some tearful embraces as the result was announced.

It will take effect after Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-Wen passes it into law.
