A same sex bill is set to be considered by politicians in Thailand which could make the country the first country in Asia to legalise same sex civil partnership.

Other changes would include inheritance and property rights for same sex couples, and the right to give medical consent if their partner is sick.

However, a same sex couple could not marry and will not be able to jointly adopt children.

One couple who married in America told Sky’s Siobhan Robbins it was a ‘step in the right direction’.

Chakgai ‘M’ Jermkwan married his husband Sean L’Estrange, 45, in America in 2012 – but their marriage is not acknowledged legally.
