BANGKOK (CNA) — The 2019 Taiwan LGBTQ Film Festival in Bangkok kicked off Saturday, with a forum hosted to highlight the process Taiwan went through to legalize same-sex marriage.

The festival opened with the screening of “Small Talk” (日常對話), a documentary directed by Huang Hui-Chen (黃惠偵) detailing her relationship with her mother, at Warehouse 30 in Bangkok, attracting nearly 100 people, including three members of Thailand’s parliament from the Future Forward Party — Klaikong Vaidhyakarn, Nateepat Kulsetthasith and Tunyawaj Kamolwongwat.

After the screening of the film, a forum was hosted by Taiwanese LGBTQ activist Jay Lin (林志杰), founder and CEO of Taipei-based Portico Media and founder of LGBTQ streaming platform GagaOOLala.

Lin expounded on the series of steps Taiwan has taken to become the first country in Asia to legalize same-sex marriage last month, in the hope of making more Thai people know more about Taiwan.    [FULL  STORY]
