taiwan first place in asia to recognize same-sex marriage

(TAIPEI, Taiwan) — Taiwan's Constitutional Court has ruled in favor of same-sex marriage, making the island the first place in Asia to recognize gay unions.The court on Wednesday said the current civil code that does not permit same-sex marriages was a violation of two articles of the constitution of the Republic of China, Taiwan's official name.It says authorities must either enact or amend relevant laws within two years, failing which same-sex couples could have their marriages recognized by submitting a document.Both the ruling and major opposition parties support legalization of same-sex marriage, as do a majority of the public and President Tsai Ing-wen.Gays and lesbians in Taiwan have formed an effective lobby in recent years, with an annual Gay Pride march drawing tens of thousands.

taiwan: landmark gay marriage case heard at supreme court

A panel of judges at Taiwan's Supreme Court on Friday began hearing deliberations in a landmark case that could see the island become the first nation in Asia to allow same-sex marriage.The case — which stems from the rejection of a gay activist's attempt to marry his partner in 2013 — has been helped along by municipal authorities in Taipei seeking clarity over other gay-marriage requests, the BBC reports.It comes amid parliamentary debate on legalizing gay marriage that has divided public opinion and provoked protests from conservatives. Tsai Ing-wen, Taiwan's President, has expressed support for marriage equality in the past and the first draft of a bill to legalize same-sex marriage was approved by Taiwan's parliament in December.Since then, however, anti-same-sex-marriage campaigners

taiwan doesn't want to be used 'as a chess piece'

A Taiwanese flag flies in front of buildings in Taipei, Taiwan, on Nov. 9, 2015.  Bloomberg/Getty Images(TAIPEI) — Taiwan's government, worried about being used as a pawn by China and the United States, said on Monday the self-ruled island must protect its own interests as concerns in Taipei rise ahead of an expected meeting of U.S and Chinese leaders.China has never renounced the use of force to take back what it deems a wayward province and has been pressuring Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen, who leads an independence-leaning ruling party, to concede Taiwan is a part of China.The United States is Taiwan's only major political ally and sole arms supplier."We call on the United States and China, when they improve relations, to not use Taiwan in their own interest or as a chess piece," Cather

china's isolation of taiwan poses risks for global health

When the World Health Assembly (WHA) convenes in Geneva on Monday, it will do so for the first time in nine years without Taiwan, a self-governed democracy that also boasts some of the highest medical standards in Asia. Since 2009, Taiwan has been an official observer at this annual World Health Organization gathering, allowing it to participate in the global fight against disease. This year China has blocked its attendance over Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen’s refusal to publicly endorse Beijing’s view that the island and the mainland are part of a single Chinese nation. Taipei is infuriated that its exclusion could not only endanger its own 23m citizens, but create a loophole in global health security networks that, it claims, will risk lives across Asia and beyond.On May 15, Taiwanese

wha: china's bid to exclude taiwan could prove deadly

Taipei has threatened to gate-crash the World Health Assembly’s annual meeting in Geneva this month, after a raucous Chinese protest saw the Taiwanese delegation humiliatingly ejected from an international diamond congress in Australia on Monday.Australia has complained to the Chinese ambassador about an “extraordinary” disruption to the Kimberley Process conference's opening ceremony in Perth, which saw China’s delegates grab a microphone and loudly protest Taiwan’s presence in the room.The outburst was described as “disgusting” by an Australian official, but Taiwan was still sent home. The incident fits a growing pattern of attempts by Beijing, which views Taiwan as a renegade province, to squeeze Taipei out of the international arena.Taiwan is now bracing for another blow if it does not

north carolina gop files bill voiding same-sex marriage

Three Republican lawmakers have filed a bill seeking to outlaw same-sex marriage within North Carolina.House Bill 780, otherwise known as the “Uphold Historical Marriage Act," says the United States Supreme Court "overstepped its constitutional bounds" when it negated an amendment of North Carolina's constitution in its 2015 landmark Obergefell v. Hodges case that legalized same-sex marriage nationwide.If passed, North Carolina's new bill would invalidate same-sex marriage, reportedly including marriages that have already been officiated — both in and out of the state — despite the Supreme Court's ruling.The bill's main sponsors are Reps. Larry Pittman, Michael Speciale, and Carl Ford, who in the filed bill cite a 61% affirmative vote for Article 14, Section 6 of the state's constitution t
