Hundreds of pairs tie the knot after parliament became the first in Asia to legalise same-sex marriage
After decades of campaigning and waiting, Taiwan has welcomed hundreds of same-sex couples as they exerted their brand-new legal rights to tie the knot.
Dozens of reporters and photographers crowded a registry part in Taipei on Friday waiting to capture the moment when the self-ruled island became the first country in Asia to legalise homosexual marriage.
Marc Yuan and Shane Lin were the first to sign their wedding certificate under the gaze of the famed Taiwanese LGBTQ privileges activist, Chi Chia-wei.
The couple, who the hell is waited 12 years for the law to change, said they felt fortunate to be able to celebrate their union.
” It has been a striking accomplishment for Taiwan’s same-sex marriage motion, and I feel luck to have the approvals from my friends and family ,” said Lin.
