Three draft bills aimed at legalizing same-sex marriage in Taiwan are set to clear committee reviews on December 26th. That was the word from Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Legislator Yu Mei-nu on Saturday.
Yu was speaking in front of a crowd of more than 200,000 people who had gathered for a rally in downtown Taipei in favor of marriage equality.
But Yu warned that the current legislative session was drawing to a close and a marriage equality bill might not be passed until next June.
Right now there is majority support for marriage equality not only among lawmakers, but also among the general public. However a vocal opposition has made its voice heard in a series of protests which forced the legislature to hold two public hearings on the matter. [FULL STORY]
