Thailand actually passed the Civil Partnership Bill when it was considered by the cabinet a year ago in July 2020, but it hasn’t been fully enacted.

Sorry, Thaiger, but that's badly wrong and needs correcting.


"Thailand" did NOT pass the Bill a year ago, but it was only passed by the Cabinet - completely different.


It has not been voted on in Parliament yet, nor is it likely to be for a few more months following some protests from some Thai Muslim groups (now withdrawn).


Edit: to be fair, there are also protests from some gay rights groups who say the Bill does not go far enough and want full marriage rights rather than a Civil Partnership stepping stone.  Counter-productive and very short-sighted in my opinion.
