Currently, in Taiwan, only women with a legal heterosexual partner can use eggs to get pregnant; single women or LGBTQ partners are not able to get pregnant legally. Unsatisfied with the backwardness of this law in Taiwan, we created a praying performance of "My queer body, my ownership" to Mazu (媽祖), an LGBTQ-supportive goddess in Taiwan's folk religion, in the hope of letting the world know about the situation in Taiwan, thus making it more important for Taiwan to emphasize LGBTQ rights and women's rights.
