New Film Tells Story of Taiwan's Path Toward Marriage Equality

Set in Taipei, the documentary follows three Taiwanese individuals affected by the recent constitutional ruling that could pave the way for legalised same-sex marriage.

One year after Taiwan's courts ruled that it was unconstitutional to bar same-sex marriage, LGBT couples are still unable to wed.
However, German filmmaker Lucie Liu was inspired by the ruling, and began making the documentary taipeilove* to show the "struggles toward marriage equality" in the island nation, according to Gaystar News.
Liu explained that she wanted to bring greater attention to Taiwan, the only Asian country to have made such a move toward greater gay rights, even though progress is slowgoing.
By following and filming three LGBT individuals—Sarah, Kevin, and David—as they navigate societal pressures and homophobia in Taipei, Liu hopes to spread the message that "change is possible."
"You have to believe things will be better...things will be better," says one voice in the documentary's trailer.
"The situation is a bit unfortunate since the government is stalling the decision and is rather quiet about it," Liu told Gaystar News about the lack of developments since the landmark ruling. However, she added that she feels "Taiwan has already taken a very important step."
Taipeilove* is currently in post-production and at the centre of a crowdfunding campaign to "get it across the finish line," according to Gaystar News.
