Ten same-sex couples were married in a mass wedding in Taipei.

The mass wedding ceremony took place on Saturday (October 24) in a government-hosted event in Taipei in twice-yearly event that stated in 1973.

However, this year marked the first time same-sex couples had participated in the event – even though same-sex marriage has not yet been legalised in Taiwan.

Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je presided over the event which saw 123 couples tie the knot at the University of Taipei’s sports stadium.

 LGBT rights activist Nelson Chen – who took part in the mass wedding with his partner Kao Chih-wei – praised the move.

“The wedding today not only marks the 10th anniversary of our happiness and companionship, it is also our way to show practical support for the Taipei city government, for its decision to include gay couples in its mass wedding,” he said.

“Even though same-sex marriage is not yet legalised in Taiwan, if more gay couples can bravely come forward, it will set a great example for the public,” he told Central News Agency.

The event in Taipei was held a day after the city of Taoyuan became the first city in Taiwan to allow same-sex couples to participate in a mass wedding.

However, the marriages between same-sex couples remain entirely symbolic and are not legally binding.
