Taiwan: Gay couples may soon be able to get public housing in Taipei

In 2015 Taipei allowed same-sex couples to register their partnerships, now they’re going one step further and want them to be able to apply for public housing
Same-sex couples living in Taiwan’s capital will so be able to rent public housing. Chien Se-fang, a division chief at the Taipei City government’s Department of Urban Development said it had approved changes to regulations of public housing rentals. Chien confirmed the amendments were now on to the next stage of public approval and will then be submitted to the city’s municipal administrative council for final approval in May.
If all of the steps are approved, people in registered same-sex partnerships will be able to apply for public housing.
