This year we have a lot of things to celebrate here, in Asia! ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ซ Taiwan’s parliament has become the first in Asia to legalise same-sex marriage following a vote on 24th of May!

We will always remember this day! So happy for Taiwanese brothers and sisters! โฃ We believe Thailand should be the next in the list!

And here we have another optimistic news! Cabinet of Thailand has approved the civil partnership Bill, earlier this year, paving the way for Thailand to become the second country in Asia to endorse same-sex marriage๐ŸŒˆ The current Bill, approved by the Cabinet last December, allows same-sex couples to adopt children. The Bill is poised to go before the National Legislative Assembly for a final decision. (fingers crossed๐Ÿคž)

Sawasdee krub*, Singapore!โฃ โฃ โฃ ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ‘ฌโฃ โฃ โฃ โ€œSawasdeeโ€ is the Thai word used for greeting and goodbye. Thai people, especially younger people, also โ€œwaiโ€ others as a greeting or to say thank you to show respect.โฃ โฃ โฃ ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฟโฃ โฃ โฃ โ€œSawasdee kaโ€ is used by females and โ€œSawasdee krubโ€ by males.โฃ โฃ โฃ ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌโฃ โฃ โฃ Interesting ๐ŸŒˆLGBTQ+ detail that is not that obvious for the Western people in Asia: often feminine gay guys in Thailand will say โ€œkaโ€ instead of โ€œkrubโ€. However, local lesbians, mostly refereed to here as โ€œtomboysโ€, will say almost always โ€œkaโ€ instead of โ€œkrubโ€. Any thoughts why? What do you think we usually say โ€œkaโ€ or โ€œkrubโ€? โฃ โฃ โฃ ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ญโฃ โฃ โฃ P.S. Singapore, we are so sorry to make this post about Thailand! We promise to give you enough attention in the next few days!๐Ÿฅฐโ™ฅ๏ธ
