I don’t think being transgender poses a challenge for me working as a minister. I think in Taiwan, we are very much gender mainstreamed. Not only we have legalized marriage equality, but actually, Dr. Tsai Ing-wen became president not because she is the wife or daughter of any one political family or things like that. People just enter parliament and see more than 40 percent of legislators are women.
