【看CP學英文】台灣去年5月24日通過同志婚姻專法,今年即將歡慶一週年,在此同時,美國CNN知名同志主播安德森庫柏也在月初宣布自己已為人父的消息,讓粉絲感到既震撼又開心,今(13)日更透露他將與前男友(Benjamin Maisani)共同扶養領養的寶貝兒子,共組家庭。

As the anniversary of the legalization of same-sex marriage in Taiwan approaches, the story of CNN news anchor Anderson Cooper’s son has given hope to those advocating for adoption rights by gay couples. Cooper announced earlier this month that he would be a new dad to an adopted son and would be raising the child with his former partner, Benjamin Maisani.

庫柏上美國節目《霍華史登秀》受訪時透露他與交往10年的前男友Maisani仍是好朋友,並希望他能一同扶養小孩懷亞特(Wyatt Morgan

The openly gay CNN host told Howard Stern on SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern Show that he has decided to co-parent his new son, Wyatt Morgan, with ex-boyfriend Benjamin Maisani, with whom he dated for a decade.

主持人史登問道,「你難道不想和這男的關係切乾淨嗎?我的意思是他畢竟是你曾經愛的人,為什麼希望他能幫忙扶養小孩?」

“Don’t you want a clean break from this guy? I mean this was a guy, you were in love, you had a close relationship, why have him involved?” Stern asked.

庫柏回應,「我沒有家庭,所以我的朋友也就變成我的家人。他(Benjamin)是與我共渡10年的人,是個好人。」

“I don’t really have a family, so my friends have become my family. This is somebody I was involved with for 10 years,” Cooper answered.

“He’s a great guy,” Cooper said of Maisani.

「我覺得最好當然是希望能有一對家長,有越多人愛著我的小孩、陪伴他,我全力支持。」

“I think it’s good to have two parents if you can. If more people love my son and are in his life, I’m all for that.” 

CNN主播的這項決定在同志圈投下震撼彈,而庫柏大膽的決定也開啟了台灣同志領養辦法更多討論的空間。

The CNN host’s decision opened more discussion space for regulations surrounding adoption for same-sex couples in Taiwan.

據內政部統計,截至今年二月已經有2939對同性伴侶登記結婚。

According to statistics from the Ministry of the Interior, there were 2,939 same-sex marriages as of February 2020.
