TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Award-winning indie singer Deserts Chang said Friday she
was willing to talk to members of the public about same-sex marriage and other topics next week.
The 35-year-old star is known as an independent thinker and has participated in official hearings about gay marriage, which is to be discussed at the Legislative Yuan on December 26.
Polarization between supporters and opponents of same-sex marriage has intensified over the past weeks as both sides held massive rallies, each mobilizing an estimated more than 100,000 marchers.
Chang said that after having spoken at the hearing in favor of amending existing laws to allow for same-sex marriage, she felt she could still do more, such as exchanging views face-to-face with interested members of the public. [FULL STORY]
