Taiwan: What’s next after marriage equality?

 | 
10/24/2019

When the annual Taipei LGBT Pride sets off from City Hall on Saturday, it promises to be an especially joyful occasion. With the legalization of marriage equality earlier this year, participants will mark the closest thing to a crowning achievement for Taiwan’s LGBT movement in more than 30 years of struggle. But even after that watershed moment in May, activists have not wasted any time sitting on their laurels. Taiwan’s LGBT movement now finds itself dealing with the lingering effects of the bigotry unleashed during last year’s referendum campaigns. Looking ahead, it is also setting its sights on defending gender equity education and trans rights, viewing these as the next battlegrounds for equality.
