At least 157 couples to wed on first day of same-sex marriage in Taiwan

A 2017 court ruling means same-sex marriages will automatically become legal on 24 May.

At least 157 couples in Taiwan plan to wed on the first day same-sex marriage will be legal in Taiwan next month, according to a local rights organisation. Same-sex marriage will automatically become legal in Taiwan on 24 May according to a 2017 Constitutional Court ruling.
