If you thought the National Organization for Marriage and other such groups disappeared once we won the freedom to marry in 2015, think again. You heard me: The discredited opponents we beat here are now targeting other countries with their fear-mongering and outside funding — part of the global instability and assault on democracy we all see around the world. In cahoots with autocrats like Vladimir Putin and hardline religious hierarchies, they are opportunistically exporting their harmful agenda across the globe — from Eastern European countries like Romania to Latin American countries like Guatemala and now countries in Asia. One major battleground in this struggle for human rights right now is Taiwan.
