Where Do Trans Rights Stand in Taiwan After Same-Sex Marriage Legalization?


An estimated 5,000 people gathered in Ximending on the evening of October 27 for the fifth annual Taiwan Trans March, making it the largest Trans March to date with around 2,000 more attendees than last year’s march. This increased attendance indexes the growing centrality of transgender issues amongst Taiwan’s broader LGBTQ+ movement in the post-same-sex marriage era. While transgender activism in Taiwan dates back to as early as 2000, when the first transgender advocacy group, Taiwan TG Butterfly Garden (台灣TG蝶園), was established, there has been a dramatic increase in transgender visibility, advocacy work, and public discourse in the past five years.
