Marriage equality remains in Bermuda, falls in Taiwan
2018-11-28

It was a mixed weekend for same-sex marriage advocates as they won a legal battle in Bermuda Nov. 23 after the country's government attempted to have the Court of Appeal define marriage as between a man and a woman only, The Royal Gazette reported. However, in Taiwan, LGBTs lost, by wide margins, voter referenda in Taiwan Nov. 24 regarding marriage equality, as well as concerning curricula on same-sex issues in elementary and middle schools.

The Bermuda court dismissed the government appealed former Chief Justice Ian Kawaley's 2017 ruling that allowed same-sex marriage.

However, the government may apply for the matter to be heard via the Privy Council in Britain within the next 21 days. If the council agrees to hear the case, the body could grant a stay.

In Taiwan, the national referendum ( available at referendum.2018.nat.gov .tw/pc/en/00/00000000000000000.html ) showed than when people were asked, "Do you agree that marriage defined in The Civil Code should be restricted to the union between one man and one woman?," more than 7 million agreed while only 2.7 millionn voted no.

Moreover, when Taiwanese voters were asked, "Do you agree that the Ministry of Education should not implement the Enforcement Rules for Gender Equity Education Act in elementary and middle schools?," about 6.7 million people concurred while 3.2 million voted against it.
