LGBTQI activists call on govt to recognise every citizen’s right to create a family

BOTH THE Civil Code’s marriage law and the new Life Partnership Bill are in violation of the Constitution’s gender-equality principle, gender-diversity campaigners asserted as they pressed for full marriage equality rather than a two-tier approach that continues to stigmatise minorities.

The Life Partnership Bill will only be acceptable if this bill adheres to the marriage principle and secures rights and benefits for LGBTQI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and intersex) married couples that are the same as for straight couples, Kittinan Thammatath, director of Rainbow Sky Association of Thailand, insisted.

Kittinan and others yesterday addressed a seminar at Chulalongkorn University, where they discussed people’s rights to marriage equality and to creating a gender-diverse family.
