Thailand Marching Towards Recognizing Same-sex Unions by the End of 2018

11/06/2018 | Gay Star News

Thailand’s military government is holding public consultations on same-sex unions and may pass legislation before the end of the year. The Life Partnership bill could be considered by cabinet by the end of the month, local media reported. This would make Thailand the first country in Asia to recognize same-sex unions. The 70-section bill would grant same-sex or gender diverse couples tax reductions, welfare benefits, and the right to inherit property. It is akin to the UK’s 2004 Civil Partnership legislation.
