LGBT party offers new choice in Thailand's election

Seven million-strong community presses for equal rights

BANGKOK -- Thailand's much awaited election on March 24 is set to be dominated by pro- and anti-junta candidates, but the rest of the field will be far more diverse than in previous years.

While the main contenders have focused on the economy and the widening rich-poor divide, the Mahachon Party is preparing to field up to 20 candidates who openly identify as LGBT, and are promoting inclusion and equal rights.
