Stories of Change – LGBTI Movement in Taiwan🌈🌈

🔊🎥🎬on 24 May 2017, Taiwan’s Constitutional Court announced Interpretation No. 748, which rules that the prohibition of same-sex marriage in the current Civil Code violates the Constitution. This ruling marks a landmark achievement of the LGBTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) movement in Taiwan, and paves the way for legalising same-sex marriage in the future. The LGBTI movement in Taiwan was started by Chi Chia-wei in 1986 and is now joined by thousands of supporters in Taiwan and abroad.

For this video, FORUM-ASIA collaborated with the local civil society in Taiwan including the Marriage Equality Coalition Taiwan, Taiwan Tongzhi Hotline Association, and Taiwan Alliance to Promote Civil Partnership Rights, to highlight the significance of the Constitutional Court’s ruling No.748 on marriage equality Taiwan, and its impact for the LGBTIQ movement in Asia. #LGBTI #Taiwan

FORUM-ASIA is happy to launch its latest Stories of Change video. For this campaign we work with filmmakers from different Asian countries to tell stories of how human rights and the human rights movement have and continue to make a difference in the lives of people across Asia.

We dedicate these stories to all the brave human rights defenders, who work tirelessly to fight against injustice around the world so all of us can exercise our rights.
