Hundreds of thousands took to the streets in Taipei this afternoon, calling on the government to enact
marriage equality legislation.
Today’s public gathering, held in front of the Presidential Office Building, is seen as a critical point in the same-sex marriage campaign, which threatens to be derailed by loud opposition from religious groups and a lack of political will by government legislators and President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文).
As of around 4 p.m., there were more than 200,000 people present, event organizers told The News Lens International. The event wrapped up around 8:30 p.m. [SOURCE]
