Thailand moves a step closer to legalising marriage equality

Thailand’s lower house has passed a bill which gives legal recognition to same-sex marriage, nudging the country closer to becoming the first South East Asian nation to introduce marriage equality.

The legislation, which was submitted to parliament back in November and passed by 400 of the 415 lawmakers on Wednesday (27 March), must still be approved by the Senate and get royal endorsement from King Maha Vajiralongkorn in order to become officially law.
