Taiwan will become the first place in Asia to legalize same-sex unions.

The highest court ruled laws that prevent same-sex couples from marrying are unconstitutional and a direct violation to a person’s right to equality.

As the BBC reports, parliament has two years to revise current laws or pass new ones.

A press release says the court found that “disallowing two persons of the same sex to marry, for the sake of safeguarding basic ethical orders” constituted a “different treatment” with “no rational basis.”

In conclusion, “such different treatment is incompatible with the spirit and meaning of the right to equality” that Taiwan’s constitution protects.

Twitter erupted at the news:
