Unfortunately it was later revealed Olivia was one of the 22 people killed in the attack. Speaking at a vigil held to remember Olivia and the other victims of the attack, Charlotte thanked the community for trying to help find her daughter and defiantly urged people to stand together saying "don't let this beat any of us" and "don't let my daughter be a victim".

24 MAY: Taiwan's top judges have ruled in favour of gay marriage, paving the way for it to become the first place in Asia to legalise same-sex unions. The highest court ruled that current laws preventing members of the same sex from marrying violated their right to equality and were unconstitutional. It gave parliament two years to amend existing laws or pass new ones. Wednesday's landmark decision came as the LGBT community faces increasing persecution in the region. #Taiwan #LGBT #LGBTQ #SameSexMarriage #Asia #GayMarriage #BBCShorts #BBCNews @bbcnews
