Taiwan is the latest state to rule in favour of same-sex marriage.

A Taiwan court has issued a landmark ruling that gay marriage will become available to gay couples, making the island the first Asian place to allow same-sex marriages.

The court ruled that the country’s civil code “violated” the Taiwanese constitution which guarantees freedom of marriage and equality.

The notion of legalising same-sex marriage in Taiwan was first proposed in 2003, however, the bill received mass opposition and was not voted on.
