Taiwanese military mass wedding to feature its first same-sex couples

Two female soldiers and their partners are due to take part in this year’s ceremony.

 

Two same-sex couples are to be married in the Taiwanese army’s annual mass wedding ceremony this week, in a first after the island’s government legalised marriage equality 18 months ago.
The female soldiers and their civilian partners – Chen Ying-xuan and Lee Ying-ying, and Wang Yi and Meng Youmei – will wed on Friday.
The military said: “Our country … has become the first in Asia to legalise same-sex marriage and the ministry gives its blessings to same-sex servicemen who are getting married.”
It posted dozens of wedding photos of couples taking part in Friday’s formalities and asked people to vote on their favourite. The photo of Wang and Meng has been liked more than 31,000 times on Facebook alone.
