Movie actor proposes to his boyfriend in the Xinyi District of Taipei, Taiwan:
‘Being gay is not easy, and finding a truly loving gay partner can be very difficult. It is more so when the son of a Christian priest falls in-love with a devout Buddhist! The time I have spent with you has changed my life for the better, and I have become a better person and a more fulfilled person because of your influence. I know life in Taiwan is not perfect for gay people yet, but things are changing slowly, and I think that we could, together, set a progressive example of tolerance and love for all others to follow. I want you know that whatever your decision, I love and respect you without end and want to spend my life with you. Will you marry me?’
After listening to this speech, his partner came forward and kissed him and said ‘yes’ to getting married! Everyone present cheered and blessed the happy couple!
A friend of the happy couple – actor Chiwen Hung – stated:
‘One of the men in this video is an ex-work colleague of mine. He proposed to his boyfriend whilst on a short break from work – yes, this friend is gay. It is our view that a modern marriage should be premised upon genuine love, and not limited to just heterosexual couples – as gay people love one another too. In Taiwan it is still not strictly legal to get married – but the institute of a loving marriage should be limited by gender. I think these too men are very brave to go public with their relationship and intention to marry, and would sincerely ask everyone to please support them. Please applaud and bless them, OK?’
Love has no limits!
