Proponents of legalizing same-sex marriage in Taiwan hope other governments in Asia will follow their lead. Taiwan’s Justices of the Constitutional Court cited “freedom” and “people’s right to equality” when it said Wednesday the law should allow same-sex marriage and told parliament to make sure of it. Taiwanese LGBT groups are wondering now who else in the region might follow when their homeland officially becomes Asia’s first place to allow same-sex marriage. "I believe the influence will be quite deep, and we'll see if activists in other countries can push their governments, give the governments more pressure," said Chien Chih-chieh, secretary general of the Taiwan Alliance to Promote Civil Partnership Rights. The short answer to who's next: Thailand and maybe Cambodia.
