TAIPEI, Taiwan — President Tsai Ing-wen said she felt that marriage equality did not
necessarily conflict with family values, a presidential spokesman said after she met with activists from rival camps over gay rights on Saturday.
Tsai met with representatives from religious groups in the morning and with gay rights activists in the afternoon to gauge their opinions about marriage equality, Presidential Office spokesman Alex Huang said.
The president had made it clear in both sessions that the issue of marriage equality required more open dialogue, he said.
She also apologized for being late in arranging such a dialogue, acting only after the issue sparked months of fiery debate. [FULL STORY]
