Civil partnerships and French ‘dicks’ | Good Morning Thailand

Out of nowhere, but perhaps inspired, or prompted by the Pride Month activities around Bangkok, the Thai cabinet has approved what is considered the first step towards same sex marriage in Thailand, a Civil Partnership Bill. This bill will allow same-sex couples to ‘register’ their partnership, not get legally married. The new Bill defines a civil partnership as a “couple born with the same gender”. Civil unions would become available to consenting same-sex couples who are at least 17 years old. At least one must be a Thai national. French Muay Thai Kickboxer, Jimmy Vienot, unintentionally made a bit of an idiot of himself after his recent fight with Petchmorakot Petchyindee at the Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok. Getting a celebratory tattoo, the tattoo artist made an unfortunate error. Whoops.
