Taiwan to amend LGBT education law

03/27/2019 | Gay Star News

Taiwan’s education ministry has revised a 2004 law that promotes sexual orientation and gender identity education in the country’s schools. Luckily, the ministry’s proposed changes this week maintain LGBT-inclusive teaching in elementary and middle schools. In November last year, more than six million people voted against the LGBTI-inclusive Gender Equity Education Act. On the same day, voters also opted against changing the Civil Code to grant marriage equality. The ministry will rename the ‘gay education’ section as ‘sexual orientation education’. But, according to LGBTI activists, the content of the law remains unchanged. Pro-LGBT group, the Gender Equity Education Coalition, encouraged the ministry to continue its support for the inclusive curriculum.
