The Lobby Alliance for LGBT Human Rights is a group of young advocators for the Rights of LGBT. They are also trying to identify and reach out to parliament members who have been influenced by conservative views and are not supporting LGBT Rights yet.

Human Rights are a true universal value and dignity of human nature without any disputes. Although the opinion polls cannot be fulfilled as an obligation, Taiwan has surpassed many other countries in the world with more than half of Taiwanese population supporting gay marriage. Taiwan is a place that full of hopes and prosperous futures. We truly believe that the historical moment to achieve the Taiwan LGBT Rights will be arrived soon. As long as we gather together with all the workers, citizens, and friends to stand up for our basic Human Rights, we will let Taiwan Parliament to consider this subject seriously and face this crucial step toward the Human Rights in the 21st century, and let the rainbow always be at Taiwan horizon.
