250,000 Rally In Taiwan For Marriage Equality

Supporters of marriage equality are being visible and making their voices heard as around 250,000 people gathered in Taiwan this weekend in support of same-sex marriage. 

Asia Times reports:

Around 250,000 people gathered in front of Taiwan’s Presidential Office on Saturday, urging the government to legalize same-sex marriage.

Singers, public figures, concern groups and legislators from various political parties turned out to voice their support. The rallying call was for the government to amend Taiwan’s Civil Code.

The event, which took the form of a concert, was staged to coincide with international Human Rights Day. It came a week after some 70,000 people took to the streets of downtown Taipei to oppose same-sex marriage.


Keep it up! Love is love!
