Are gay people accepted in Thailand?
In short - ABSOLUTELY!
No matter your cultural beliefs, religion or sexual orientation, you will be welcomed to Thailand. Whether you choose to marry here or simply celebrate your honeymoon or vacation - everyone is welcome and included in Thailand.
Is there anything you should be aware of while travelling in Thailand?
All guests of Thailand should adopt the unwritten foreign rules of conduct. In Thailand this means not to draw attention to oneself - especially in public. Public displays of affection, beyond holding hands or friendly hugs are to be discouraged. However, what you do in private - is all up to you!
Is being 'gay' illegal in Thailand?
Absolutely NOT! Thailand has never had any laws against homosexuality. For Thai people, sex is a wholly private matter. Thai's believe in Buddha's belief in monogamy only. The rest, is up to you!
Can I get married in Thailand as an LGBT couple?
Same-sex marriage or civil unions are not yet recognized in Thailand. However, many Asian and Western gay couples from around the world fly to Thailand with friends and family to exchange vows. These ceremonies are often blessed by Buddhist monks. For many decades, Thailand has been considered to be the most forward, welcoming and gay-friendly country in Asia.
