Zoophilia Hyperlink Incident


Rally at First Court Appearance


University students perform direct action play in front of the courthouse to dramatize the persecution of academic research by religious and conservative values.


A 50-feet long list of petition signatures from academics, activists, and students both locally and globally surrounds Josephine Ho to show massive concern and support for her as she entered the courthouse.


Local gender/sexuality activist groups and students prepared colorful posters and slogans that proclaim academic freedom and de-stigmatization of sex-related issues.


Vincent Shieh, GRADUATE INSTITUTE OF GENDER EDUCATION, National Kaohsiung Normal University, spoke in defense of sex-related research.


Suen Ruei-Sui , representative of Taiwan Feminist Scholars Association, says the issue should be left to academic and public debate instead of court ruling.


Carlos Lin, student from National Central University, says Prof. Ho is one of the best professors in NCU


Wu Huei-Ru, lesbian student from Hsuan Chuang University, says Prof. Ho's study is important to the identity formation of sexual minorities.


Chu Wei-Li from Worker’s Democracy Association pledges to fight for Prof. Ho's right to do academic research, which is her work
