Asia has a long-standing reputation as a region which values tradition over individual preference, and these values have often meant there has been limited space in society for lesbian women.
However, Taiwan, having swooped out from under the direct control of the People's Republic of China has been leading the charge in recent years. In 2016, the people elected their first female President: Tsai Ing-wen, and this year they are looking set to become the first country in Asia to legalize same-sex marriage.
At this moment, the highest court in Taiwan is hearing a landmark case on same-sex marriage brought by gay activists and municipal authorities from the nation's capital, Taipei.
Yet despite Taiwan's outward appearance as a pro-LGBT nation, the movement towards the acceptance of same-sex marriage has split the country and prompted a backlash from it's more conservative sectors.
When government's and municipalities are battling it out to change constitutions, it's easy to forget the impact that battles over family values can have on individuals and their families.
However, today the internet has been blessed with a beautiful video about a conservative Taiwanese father slowly coming to terms with the fact that his eldest daughter is a lesbian.
