  • Status is not correct
  • Status is not correct "It is not legal yet. "
  • Status is not correct "You cannot change gender on your ID in Thailand. The description is correct, but the green text is not correct. "

  • Status is not correct "https://www.undp.org/content/dam/thailand/docs/legal-gender-recognition-in-thailand-2018.pdf Thailand currently has no law enabling transgender people to change their title, sex or gender on official documentation. "
  • Other "Sexual reassignment surgeries is legal, however, changing the sex in the ID card and pretty much every legal documents are still illegal. It is not banned to be an openly gay or transsexual in public. I'm not sure label here as legal while the current status is labeled illegal is a good idea since it is confusing. Well, if you are not gonna change it, at least put more detail there, a short description."
