    //Taipei (AsiaNews) - For more than two months, a bill to recognise gay rights and same-sex marriage has been hotly debated on the island-nation. Clearly, the aim is to adopt the first law of its kind in the Chinese-speaking world. "Taiwan," noted a Catholic, "is a window for Chinese people (中华 人) and the result of the current process will set an important precedent for legislation in other ethnically related countries."//

    Taiwan is not China, no matter what the Chinese government say.

    Could Hong Kong recognize gay rights if it wanted to? I'v lost track of how much autonomy Hong Kong still has.

    The fabulous Taiwanese. Good for them.

    Homosexuality's legal in Japan but it's been a wealthy society for much longer than Taiwan so it should be leading the way in Asia.

    Hong Kong once had British colonial anti-gay laws, which many African countries still do. The French didn't really impose such laws on their colonies.

    Just ask your gay friends their advice, before you?

    China has a long history of homosexuality. Don't know why it became a taboo. But the society changes so fast. It's getting accepted among more and more people.

    This drawing shows two ancient Chinese men having anal sex.
