Taiwanese activists call on city of Tainan to register gay relationships

Following the registrations of same-sex relationships in major city’s in Taiwan, activists now call on the city of Tainan to do the same.

Activists protested at Tainan City Council on Thursday to demand that the city allow gay residents to register partners in the city’s household records.

The cities of Kaohsiung, Taipei and Taichung have all opened household registration records to same-sex partners this year.

Activists claimed that Tainan’s failure to do so was a negligence of human rights.

The Tainan City Bureau of Civil Affairs Director Chen Tsung-yen responded by saying that different opinions in society should be respected and that the city government had no plans to allow same-sex partnership registration for the time being.

The designation of partners in the household records stops short of the same rights as a heterosexual marriage but allows for some recognition in housing and healthcare.

Just what is the rush?

If you want to sort things out legally you can for a small solicitors fee. Making a will etc isn't difficult.

If everyone felt the same way that GTi does, we would all still be hiding in our closets.

This is not an offensive comment, it is ­just an opinion.
