Thousands of anti-LGBT activists rallied in Taipei, Taiwan, on Monday while a counter protest calling for the introduction of the same-sex marriage bill was staged in the city center. No incidents were reported between participants of the rival rallies. The bill was approved in the first reading by the island’s Legislative Yuan on Monday, but is still to undergo two more readings before coming into force.
