According to the bench, the new law will help to protect the dignity of its citizens and bring necessary social stability and.
If we talk about the Gay revolution the country has already played a big role in the Gay Movement. LGBTQ movements flourished in the country and it is the reason of the Big change. It was not the first chance which came up with the Happy news as many times Tsai Ing-Wen, the President has spoken in favor of Gay or Same Sex marriage since she came to power in January 2016.
