Nida Poll of the National Institute of Development Administration conducted an opinion on the subject of “How the Thai society thinks about the 3rd sex?” on 1,250 samples during July 1-2.
The pollster asked three questions: How do you think if your colleague is a gay or a lesbian? How do you think if a member of your family is a gay or a lesbian? How do you think if same sex marriage is legalized?
The answers to the three questions are as follows: 88.72 percent said they can accept if their colleagues are gay while 10 percent said they could not accept; 79.92 percent said they didn’t mind if a member of their families was gay while 16.80 percent said they did mind and could not accept; 59.20 percent said they had no objection to legalization of same sex marriage while 35.4 percent disagreed.
