Thailand has become the first country in Southeast Asia to legalize same-sex marriage, in a historic parliamentary vote hailed as a "victory" by campaigners. Thailand will become only the third place in Asia where same-sex couples can get married, after Taiwan and Nepal, and activists are hoping the first weddings could be celebrated as early as October.
