To mark International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOT) on May 17, eight pop divas in the Chinese world, including Chang Hui-mei, A-lin, Elva Hsiao, Rainie Yang and Little S from Taiwan, Na Ying from China, Sandy Lam from Hong Kong and Tanya Chua from Singapore, have collaborated for the first time on a new single, “We Are One,” in support of the LGBT community.

Singer Jolin Tsai designed the painting for the cover of the CD. The song was released on the “Love Is King” YouTube channel, and another 115 artists took part in the music video, with each holding a rainbow placard in support of marriage equality.

As the issue of same-sex marriage continues to attract attention, the Judicial Yuan has said that the Grand Justices will release an interpretation on whether it is constitutional or not on next Wednesday at 4pm.
