Press Statement from the ILGA Asia Board on New Zealand Government recognizing MARRIAGE EQUALITY in the Asia pacific region

in WORLD, 19/04/2013

ILGA ASIA as a regional LGBTI advocacy mechanism applauds the hard work of our peers and commend the ruling by the New Zealand Government to recognize MARRIAGE EQUALITY in the Asia pacific region. The ruling made on the 17th of April 2013, at 9.39 pm in New Zealand now makes MARRIAGE EQUALITY legal in 13 countries in the world.

This landmark ruling is a demonstration of the commitment that New Zealand has for protecting the rights of all their citizens and is an example to be followed by the rest of the world. ILGA ASIA encourages other countries to follow the examples of New Zealand to work towards and set in motion the process needed to guarantee its citizens equality, freedom and the right to Love. - ILGA ASIA
