Groups blast ‘homophobic’ and ‘unjust’ family bill

03/15/2019 | Taipei Times

A coalition of LGBT rights groups yesterday urged Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Legislator Lai Shyh-bao to withdraw his draft bill on same-sex families, which they said could undermine the legalization of same-sex marriage. The bill is “homophobic” and “basically offers zero protection for same-sex families,” Taiwan LGBT Family Rights Advocacy vice president Tsai Shang-wen said at a rally outside the Legislative Yuan in Taipei. The group, along with the Awakening Foundation, Taiwan Tongzhi Hotline Association and other groups, gathered a proposal Lai has titled “The enforcement act of Referendum No. 12.”
