Two lesbian couples on Friday became the first Taiwanese Army soldiers to be married with their respective partners at a mass wedding ceremony that was officiated by the island’s Armed Forces.

This was the first time a mass wedding, which the Taiwanese army has held every year since 2014, included same-sex couples since Taiwan legalized gay marriage in 2019, making it the only place in Asia to allow such unions.EFE-EPA
