Is Taiwan not ready for gay marriage?

By Chang Sheng-en 張聖恩

Our officials should change their passive attitude and take action to help the public understand the draft amendment, the related agencies should promote marriage equality through various activities, such as workshops for school teachers and civil servants, and the legislature should hold public hearings on the issue nationwide. Both the ruling and opposition parties should also communicate with their homophobic lawmakers so as to save their parties’ images.

Let’s get ready for a gayer, fairer and better society.
