This year, Taiwan was lucky enough to become the very first country in Asia to pass the Same-Sex marriage bill. To coincide and celebrate such a magnificent event, this year at TAIMUN, we’re very proud to announce our theme—LGBTQ Rights. Passing the bill indicates our society has moved on from the past and is willing to accept new changes, new individuals, and new ideas. But still, as a global citizen, possessing the knowledge is never enough. As we envision the day when every human being, no matter the age, gender, race, and even sexual orientation can all live equally, we are responsible for spreading this knowledge and correct every misconception within the society.
