Taiwan more than ever a beacon for LGBT Asians after gay marriage law’s passage, according to the South China Morning Post in Hong Kong

They come from Indonesia, Malaysia, Hong Kong and elsewhere to see for themselves what it is like to be homosexual yet feel secure, to see gay couples hold hands.

Some LGBT Asians pay short visits to the island, such as for last month’s Pride parade, others move there to study or to stay longer-term. Taiwan was a safe haven for queer Asians long before it became the first place in the region to pass same-sex marriage legislation in May of this year.
Taiwan is often the first place LGBT individuals from elsewhere, whether there as tourists or residents, can be visibly non-heterosexual and still feel secure, according to members of the LGBT Community. At the 17th annual Pride parade in Taipei late last month, the first since the gay marriage legalisation was enacted, emotions ran high as LGBT Community members from Taiwan and visitors from countries including Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia, celebrated together.
