Taiwan’s courts have voted to allow same-sex couples to wed. But there’s no clear word on how exactly the law applies.
The government of Taiwan has survived a last-ditch attempt by conservatives to water down landmark legislation to legalize same-sex marriage. The issue has highlighted bitter divisions on the island.
Russian officials allegedly allowed a gay couple to adopt children. Now Russia's Investigative Committee has opened a criminal negligence case. And thanks to a "gay propaganda" law, the family could also face charges.
Taipei is due to take a series of decisive steps this week to legalize same-sex marriages before the May 24 deadline set by the island’s top court. However, deep divisions in public opinion may stall the process.
A week after lawmakers took the historic step of legalizing gay marriage, the first same-sex couples have tied the knot in Taiwan. Yet the newly-weds are still subject to restrictions not faced by heterosexual couples.
