Lesbian Couple Tries to Marry in Thailand's Town of Love


They didn't get their marriage certificate, but this couple raised awareness about marriage equality.

An adorable lesbian couple in Thailand joined thousands of couples across the globe who tried to get married on Valentine's Day. According to Coconuts Bangkok, Pallawee Jongtangsajjatham and Rungtiwa Tangkanopak were one of many couples that went to the Bang Rak District to get a marriage certificate on V-day but officials turned them away, saying same-sex marriage wasn't legal in the country.

The two women told the Daily News that they will file a complaint with the House of Representatives and will meet with Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra to discuss marriage equality.

"The Prime Minister should understand the issue as she shares the same sex with us," Jongtangsajjatham told the Daily News.

Coconuts Bangkok reports that the Bang Rak District office is the most popular place for couples to register their marriage in the country because "Bang Rak" translates to "Town of Love" in Thai.
