Thailand to become first Southeast Asia nation to legalise same-sex marriage

Reading now: 115

In a “monumental step forward for LGBTQ+ rights”, Thailand is set to make history as the first nation in Southeast Asia to legalise same-sex marriage.

On 18 June, 130 senators voted in favour (with only four opposing the bill) to enact marriage equality, which would make Thailand the third territory in Asia after Nepal and Taiwan to do so.

Before it can be officially passed, Thailand’s king Maha Vajiralongkorn needs to endorse the bill. However, the process is considered a formality, and it is expected to be granted.

Same-sex marriage will then come into force 120 days after it is published in the royal gazette. In Thailand’s parliament, lawmakers and activists could be seen celebrating the historic news with rainbow flags, while some raised their fists in unification with the LGBTQIA+ community.
