Taiwan: Thousands rally for gay marriage in Taiwan ahead of referendum

Thousands of people rallied for marriage equality in Taipei on Sunday, ahead of a crucial referendum on same sex marriage next week.

"I hope marriage equality can be passed to avoid future discrimination. I don't want to see more deaths and injuries. Because gays and lesbians are still vulnerable groups after all and have no so-called protection in the civil law now," demonstrator Wolf Bear said.

Taiwan's top court legalised gay marriage last May and told the Taiwanese government the decision must be put into practice within two years.

On November 24 a multi-question referendum will be held in Taiwan, with five out of ten questions relating to LGBT rights. If passed, Taiwan will become the first Asian country to legalise same sex marriage.
