Taiwan LGBT Family Rights Advocacy / Family Building
Understanding is key for LGBTQ families!
We firmly believe that family is more than blood relations. Same-sex couples can also be parents, whether they are two mothers, two fathers, or are single-parents. Every family is different, but every family deserves security and respect.
The Taiwan LGBTQ Family Rights Advocacy is here to support all diverse LGBTQ families through all aspects and difficulties of family life.
Choices for LGBTQ parents
The ultimate purpose of any adoption is to provide a child with a happy and healthy forever home with loving parents. With assistance from a social worker, prospective LGBTQ individuals can legally adopt a child in need through an accredited adoption agency. (*Currently, married same-sex couples cannot legally adopt children in Taiwan.)More
According to the “Judicial Yuan Interpretation No. 748”, allows for the spouse of a same-sex union to adopt the genetic child of the other spouse. After they have submitted an application and been screened by a social worker as well as the court, the unrelated spouse can legally establish a relationship as a second-parent with the child of their spouse.More
Artificial insemination assists individuals who wish to have biological children to conceive and may involve egg and sperm donation from other individuals. Currently, in Taiwan artificial insemination is limited to married heterosexual couples who are unable to conceive. Many same-sex couples choose to travel overseas to receive artificial insemination or to use eggs or sperm donated privately. (*Note: Private donors do not forfeit their parental rights under these circumstances.)More
