Same-Sex Marriage in Taiwan – level 2

12-12-2016 15:00

In Taiwan, the parliament is discussing the possibility of legalising same-sex marriage, which would make Taiwan the first Asian country to do this. Taiwan is one of the friendliest Asian countries towards LGBT people and has an annual gay pride parade.

Thousands of people came to protest the legalisation in front of the country’s presidential office, while supporters of the legalisation also came to voice their opinions.

Difficult words: LGBT (lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender), annual (happening every year), voice (say).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
