Moves in Taiwan to legalise same-sex marriage

Fri 30 Nov 2012 In: International News

Nelson Chen A Taiwanese gay couple is suing their capital city, Taipei, to force it to legally recognise their relationship by registering their marriage. Nelson Chen and Kao Chih-wei are arguing before Taiwan's High Administrative Court that Taiwan's civil code does not clearly state that marriage is between a man and a woman. Their case is part of a move in Taiwan to have same-sex marriages recognised and growing political support could see it become the first Asian country to legalise same-sex marriage.
