Thailand civil unions bill gets public hearing

From Bangkok Post

More than 200 people turned out yesterday to show their support for a so-called civil partnership bill that would allow same-sex couples equal marriage rights.

The supporters attended the bill’s first public hearing at Chandrakasem Rajabhat University in Bangkok.

It was jointly held by the Rights and Liberties Protection Department and the House committee on Legal Affairs, Justice, and Human Rights.

If the bill passes, I believe that Thailand will be the first nation in Asia to recognize the relationships of same-sex couples.
