Transnational Same-sex Couples Q3 (Apri-June)

By Annie Huang | Project Consultant

  • Total media exposures: 60+ media exposures from April to June. A total of 95+ exposures from Jan to June. 
  1. FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN- On May 1st, TAPCPR launched an online fundraising campaign. With famous Taiwanese singers singing in a music video, "SEA U SOON” campaign received great responses in an month.  With the success campaign, medias and bloggers have been spreading the music video all over Asia. 
  2. PETITION- TAPCPR had been collecting petitions for citizens to express their support toward transnational same-sex marriage from April 01 to May 16, which gained 13500 petitions from online and offline activities.
  3. LOBBY- The transnational same-sex marriage lobby action was taken action in front of the presidential hall on May 17, one year after Taiwan legalised same-sexmarriage. Good media exposure results had increased social awareness about the issue.   
  • Social Communication
  1. PETITION- On May 10th, couples of TAPCPR groups, volunteers and partners gathered in North, South, East and Central Taiwan. They went on the street practicing face to face communications about supporting transnational same-sex marriage. Furthermore, because online communication was going on around the same period of time, 13,500 petitions were collected. More than 100,000 people were communicated through our online and offline action.  
  2. SPEECHES- 6 public speeches were happened, talking about transnational same-sex marriage in Taiwan. 
  • Transnational same-sex couples gatherings and case rescues:
  1. Internal gatherings: Transnational same-sex couples were gathered in front of the presidential hall with TAPCPR, expressing the urgent need for the government to fix the law soon.  
  2. Case rescue: Provided assistance to a same-sex couple of Singapore and Taiwan in June. The couple has a new born baby, and is asking for the rights of their marriage legalisation, so they can take care of the baby under Taiwanese law protection.  
  • Litigation

Starting last October, TAPCPR attorneys had filed petitions to the administration on behalf of two transnational couples who weren’t able to register their marriage in Taiwan. Unfortunately the government dismissed the appeals, TAPCPR started litigation work right after. 

Two case litigations are under process by the end of June, one petition is getting ready to file. With comparatively positive attitude of the judge and more public support, TAPCPR attorneys are ready for the upcoming challenges.
