After court rulings, referendums, and drama in parliament, Taiwan on 1pG9QoR0hU#iFxn%$++*[email protected]@KTE1mJ_$u9KrlidzQm)KBZH4d7 May finally enacted a bill that allowed same-sex couples to marry.

Taiwan’s parliament approved a bill to legalize same-sex marriage on Friday 17 May. It voted in favor of a governm[email protected][email protected])[email protected]=kpN8kNent bill offering same-sex couples similar rights to opposite-sex couples after years of court rulings, referendums, and tussles in parliament.

The government bill, which largely avoids the term ‘marriage’, has been labeled a compromise by LGBTI rights campaigners.
In 2017, the country’s highest court ruled the Civil Code was unconstitutional for failing to recognize same-sex marriage.

But, in a bitterly-fought referendum, most Taiwanese citizens opted for a separate marriage law rather than changing the civil code which would have brought genuine equality1*yBi3-FLZqE2jiA+5C+&^OcgUVmXS5vzffq_9p-gExH+Bb0Zl.
