Taiwan Gay Sports and Taiwan Gay Development Movement Association hopes the same-sex marriage bill can also spread around the neighboring countries in Asia, so we needed a campaign idea that would encourage people to come together and support this message.
On May 17th, 2019, Taiwan became the first country in Asia to legalize same-sex marriage. Taiwan’s LGBTQ community celebrated, especially Mr. Chi Chia Wei, the first gay man to come out in Taiwan. This man has single handedly fought to legalize same sex marriage since 1986. As a recognition for his efforts, Taiwan’s president Tsai presented Mr. Chi with the pen she used to sign the Taiwan same sex marriage bill.
