Countries Thay May Soon Support Gay Marriage

In 2003, the Chinese Parliament proposed a law allowing gay marriage, but the proposal failed to get the support it needed. Taiwan, in the same year, proposed legislation granting same-sex marriages but the bill faced opposition in cabinet and is currently stalled in the legislative system.

Estonia is currently discussing the possibility of legalizing gay marriage. One same-sex marriage ceremony was conducted in France in 2004, but has since been declared void.

New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark has expressed support for the idea of gay marriage, but has yet to introduce legislation to legalize it. As New Zealand has a history of liberal legislation, having been the first country in the world to give women the right to vote, same-sex marriage laws may soon be in place there.

In 2004 King-Father Norodom Sihanouk of Cambodia wrote that he was impressed by the gay marriages conducted in San Francisco and that he would support gay marriage if it was raised by his people.
