Judges in Taiwan today ruled in favor of gay marriage, making it the first place in Asia to recognize same-sex couples.
The landmark decision was announced earlier this afternoon, after a top court ruled on a challenge to Article 972 of the Civil Code, which states that says marriage is between a man and a woman. A panel of 14 judges today deemed that law unconstitutional.
Following today's ruling, the Taiwanese Parliament must amend the laws or pass new ones entirely.
