Thailand’s government has made moves to create a law allowing same-sex couples to have their partnerships officially recognized.
A subcommittee in the Justice Ministry has been drafting the Bill. It will present the draft to the Cabinet for approval in May.
‘The department aims to have this draft law promulgated within the term of this present government,’ a source the ministry’s Rights and Liberties Protection Department (RLPD) told Nation Multimedia.
Official recognition of partnerships will help same-sex couples get the same rights as heterosexual partners and spouses.
