Taiwan: First Asian country to Legalise Same-Sex Marriage

Taiwan: First Asian country to Legalise Same-Sex Marriage

Taiwan's parliament has become the first in Asia to legalise same-sex marriage following a vote on 17 May.

Taiwan has been a leader for gay rights in Asia, hosting an annual gay pride parade in Taipei attended by LGBT groups from all over the continent.

While same-sex marriage is still illegal in China, homosexuality was decriminalised in the country in 1997, and officially removed from its list of mental illnesses three years later.

In a historic decision, India's Supreme Court ruled that gay sex was no longer a criminal offence in September 2018.
