Unlike others, Wun did not have to hide his relationship with Toey. In fact, Mrs. Chanabhun shared that she was very pleased with Wun. She also expressed her full support for her son, so long that he avoids criminality and is a responsible citizen. 

In addition to that, this proud mama shares her testimony that she wants to be a good example of acceptance. “Families have the responsibility to support and accept their children,” said Mrs. Chanabhun via Ejan via Line Today.

It’s 2021 and love shouldn’t have a gender

It appears that society and lawmakers are accepting social diversity, especially when it comes to LGBTQ+ rights.

There are many more couples everywhere that need support from their families to start with.
