05/08/2020 | Focus Taiwan

Scores of volunteers from LGBT groups in Taiwan embarked on a signature campaign Saturday to petition the government on laws that restrict same-sex marriage between couples from different countries, under certain circumstances. The initial goal is to obtain 10,000 signatures on the petition, which asks government to remove the restrictions so that all same-sex couples would have the right to get married in Taiwan, said one the groups, the Taiwan Alliance to Promote Civil Partnership Rights (TAPCPR). To that end, more than 100 volunteers from LGBT groups in Taipei, Taoyuan, Hsinchu, Miaoli, Chiayi, Kaohsiung and Hualien have launched a signature campaign, and the petition will be presented to the government on May 17, the first anniversary of the country’s legislation of same-sex marriage, the TAPCPR said.
