TSP Beyond marriage equality: a conversation with LGBTQ+ activists from Taiwan and Nottingham

Legislator Mei-Nu Yu and leading LGBTQ+ activists from Taiwan and Nottingham took part in events on 6 February 2018. Discussing the fight for marriage equality, what it does and doesn't solve, and the work that remains ahead in the fight for LGBTQ+ rights in Taiwan.

In May 2017 Taiwan's top court issued a landmark ruling in favour of marriage equality, putting Taiwan on track to become the first in Asia to allow same-sex couples to marry. What role did Taiwan's LGBTQ+ activists play in this landmark decision? What does it mean for these activists to finally achieve marriage equality after decades of campaigning, and what can LGBTQ+ communities around the world learn from their experiences and vice versa?

Watch videos from the event with Taiwanese LGBT and local LGBT groups at the Nottingham Contemporary.
