In the Philippines, there are still many members of the LGBT community who experience discrimination. While this is still an ongoing concern, LGBT couples are widely accepted in other countries such as Thailand. Recently, a lesbian and gay Thai couple is making rounds online after they were seen in a seemingly happy and healthy relationship.
Amornrat Ruamsin (gay) and Pitchaya Kachainrum (lesbian) piqued the netizens’ attention when pregnancy pictures of Pitchaya went viral all over the internet. They were not hesitant in professing their journey on being soon-to-be parents to the world.
The couple had a wedding ceremony last February 9, 2018. According to Independent, the ceremony was not legal as Pitchaya is still under 17 years old, below 18 which is the age considered legal for marriage in Thailand. At any rate, the couple was all smiles when they walked down the aisle with their 5-month-old daughter.
Amornrat was beyond grateful for everything that has transpired in his life,
“I’ve had relationships with men before, but it was not that good and I was heartbroken many times. I met Pitchaya on Facebook and I first sent her a message to introduce myself. We fell in love with each other. After living together for more then a year, we agreed to have a baby. So now we have five-month-old daughter and today we got married as our parents wanted. This is the happiest day of my life.”
