In celebration of becoming the first country in Asia to legalize same-sex marriage, Taiwan threw a big wedding banquet in front of its Presidential Office Building in Taipei. About 20 couples participated in the mass wedding officiated by a lesbian film director. The banquet featured traditional Taiwanese food, drag shows, and other performances that marked the biggest victory in Taiwan's LGBT movement. A Big Fat Taiwanese Same-Sex Wedding Banquet is going to screen at the Houston Asian American Film Festival on June 8.

“Double Dads and One Queer Teen” is a short documentary about a multicultural and gender nonconforming family. Met through a newspaper personal ad in 1995, the two dads, one from Taiwan and the other one from suburban Chicago, formed a life partnership and had a baby through surrogacy with the help from a sister in 2003. The child, now a teenager, considers themselves pansexual. The film brings together different perspectives from all parties involved. It is a heartwarming and brave story that is inspirational for all families.

Both films are going to screen at Kashish Mumbai International Queer Film Festival (July 22-30) in India.
