As Taiwan enters the final stage of a debate over whether to legalize same-sex marriage, supporters of the move have made a final push to convince Taiwan’s lawmakers to pass the relevant legislation.

Matt Skallerud's insight:

On Saturday (Dec. 10), supporters of LGBT rights gathered at Ketagalan Boulevard, the main artery around the presidential office. Taiwan’s Legislative Yuan, or parliament, is due to review same-sex marriage proposals on Dec. 26, after months of protests by both supporters and opponents as well as public hearings on the move. Organizers estimated that as many as 250,000 people participated, though police estimates were much lower.

A Harvard study confirms LGBT people are more likely to come out where same-sex marriage is legal

A Harvard study confirms LGBT people are more likely to come out where same-sex marriage is legal | PinkieB.com | Gay and Lesbian Life | Scoop.it

Across the US, many LGBT people are still afraid to openly express their sexuality, and government policy can have a direct impact on whether they are comfortable taking that step.

Matt Skallerud's insight:

A comprehensive study that tracks nearly 70,000 women across the US shows those living in states recognizing same-sex relationships appear more likely to come out as LGBT than those living in states that do not. The data comes from the Nurses’ Health Study II, a cohort of registered female nurses aged 25 to 44 who completed questionnaires every two years for the past two decades.
