Taipei: Taiwan is shaping up to become the first place in Asia to allow same-sex marriage.

Alongside its vibrant youth culture, gay and lesbian causes have gone from scorn to acceptance in barely a generation, to the point that parliament is now expected to soon legalise same-sex marriage.

President Tsai Ing-wen, Taiwan's first female head of state, supports the idea and MPs are working on three same-sex marriage bills, one of which could be passed within months.
