BANGKOK (Reuters) – Thailand’s lower house of parliament on Wednesday passed a marriage equality bill at the final reading, in a landmark step that moves the country closer to becoming the third territory in Asia to legalise same-sex unions.

The bill requires approval from the Senate and endorsement from the king before it becomes law.
