In a step back for LGBTQ+ rights, Thailand has officially ruled against marriage equality within its constitution. The Constitutional Court sided with Section 1448 of the country’s Civil and Commercial Code. Under the law, it says that marriage is between a man and a woman and does not grant marital rights to same-sex partnerships. Alongside their ruling, the court encouraged government officials to “draft laws that guarantee the rights for gender diverse people”.
