Taiwan legalizes same-sex marriage in historic first for Asia

昨天許多國際傳媒都即時報導了台灣立法院通過同婚專法的歷史新頁!

伴侶盟許秀雯律師接受CNN採訪指出她希望在法案通過後,台灣社會對LGBTQ的態度能更為友善,畢竟異性戀家庭很快會知道,同志可以結婚,異性家庭完全不會有任何損失。她也表示平權戰鬥不會停在此刻,但這確實是一個令人振奮的嶄新的開始。

國際特赦組織台灣分會秘書長黃尚卿亦期許台灣政府能繼續努力,採取行動來消除一切形式對於多元性別的歧視。

Taiwan Alliance to Promote Civil Partnership Rights executive director Victoria Hsu, who represented Chi during his case, said she expected attitudes towards LGBTQ people to improve after the bill as they would see that heterosexual families “wouldn’t lose anything.”
But Hsu — who plans to register her marriage with her partner of six years when the bill takes effect next Friday — said more still needed to be done to make LGBTQ people truly equal.
“The fight is not over, but we will continue from this brand-new start,” she added.

Amnesty International Taiwan’s acting director Annie Huang agreed, saying: “The Taiwanese government must not stop here. It needs to act to eliminate all forms of discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation, gender identities and intersex status.”
