Children's SOGIESC Rights Thailand 3rd UPR Advocacy Sheet

SITUATION OF CHILDREN AND YOUTH WITH DIVERSE SEXUAL ORIENTATION, GENDER IDENTITY, EXPRESSION, AND SEX CHARACTERISTICS (SOGIESC) IN THAILAND During the 2nd cycle in 2016, Thailand received one recommendation on SOGIESC from Mexico to eradicate violence against women regardless of sexual identity. Although no specific recommendation on children and youth with diverse SOGIESC, continued efforts and progress have been made. This includes drafts of gender recognition laws, draft marriage equality bill, establishment of sexual harassment support center for students, and more universities allow students to dress according to their gender identity. At a national level, the Gender Equality Act (2015) prohibits gender-based discrimination; however, no child has filed any complaint through this mechanism due to the lack of information, awareness and child-friendly access, consisting of eight leading child rights and LGBTIQ+ organizations, led five consultations with 84 children and youth, spanning the ages of 12 to 23, to gather their reflections on their respective situations and recommendations concerning their rights.
