Taipei, Dec. 28 (CNA) Taipei and Kaohsiung, the two largest cities in Taiwan,
have teamed up on the issue of same-sex partnership registration, agreeing to allow such partnerships registered in one city to be effective in the other beginning on Jan. 1.
As of Nov. 30, 44 same-sex couples had registered their partnerships in Taipei’s household records since the city began allowing such registration in June 2015, Taipei’s Department of Civil Affairs said Monday.
The collaboration will allow the two cities to share records, and if couples move their household registration to the other city, they will not have to re-register their partnership, the department said. [FULL STORY]
