Taiwan: Pop star Jolin Tsai's new music video features lesbian theme

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Pop diva Jolin Tsai's newest music video features her first ever on-screen kiss — with a woman.

The just released video for her song "We're All Different, Yet The Same," shows the 34-year-old Tsai and 38-year-old actress Ruby Lin as a couple who not only kiss but go on to get married and spend 30 happy years together.

The emotional climax of the story comes when, decades later, one of the women cannot sign her significant other's hospital papers to allow an emergency surgery because she is not a legal spouse or family member. It is likely to strike a chord in Taiwan, where same-sex marriage has become a major discussion point.

Taiwan is widely considered to be one of Asia's most open countries for LGBTQI culture, but there is opposition to legalizing same-sex marriage from those who cite traditional values and religious beliefs.
