Economic inclusion of LGBTI groups in Thailand (Inglês)

In almost every country, stigma against a non normative sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) fuels the social exclusion of lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people. In turn, stigma and exclusion limits their access to markets, services and spaces. Due to this exclusion, these individuals are especially vulnerable to violence, further discrimination, and diminished opportunities in life. Such disadvantages not only prevent them from capitalizing on opportunities to lead a better life, they also rob them of dignity. In Thailand, a growing body of research indicates that LGBTI people and sexual/ gender minorities experience lower employment, education, health, housing and lower socio-economic outcomes than the general population. They experience an immense pressure from society at large to conform to heteronormative norms. Yet, much of the existing data on SOGI issues in Thailand is qualitative in nature and based on interviews, focus group discussions and consultations.In an effort to close this gap, the World Bank Group, in partnership with the Faculty of Learning Sciences and Education, Thammasat University and Love Frankie, conducted research to generate new data on the economic discrimination and exclusion of LGBTI individuals in Thailand.
