Controversial Thai-German Gay Couple Finally Gets Hitched

Some months ago, a photo of a Thai-German gay couple holding hands while riding the train went viral, drawing mixed reactions from netizens. Some social media users expressed support for the couple, sharing views on gender equality as advocates of the LGBTQ+ community.

Most of the feedback from the viral photo, however, took a nasty turn, with users making foul remarks on how the two men were underserving of each other, pointing out the Thai’s looks in comparison to his German boyfriend’s. Bitter and jealous comments were posted left and right, seemingly putting down what was supposed to be a universal expression of affection.

Following the scathing comments on their mild display of affection, one half of the couple took to Instagram, saying, “I’m not a famous actor nor a public person who knows how to handle criticism… I’m just ME. We’re just another average couple working hard to get to be together.”

In spite of the criticisms, the couple remained strong, showing the world that their love for one another was true — and that devotion to each other was recently cemented in a wedding.

You read right. The controversial couple just got hitched.

Nararuj “Mond” Kaendi — a former Creative Director of a modelling agency — and his German boyfriend, Thorsten Middelhof, exchanged vows in Aachen, Germany over the weekend.

Of their public humiliation on the Internet, Mond responded, “Taking photos of people like that is no different than filming under a woman’s skirt. It’s a violation of privacy.”

“Sometimes people comment ‘the foreigner got himself a hooker,’” he continued. “People don’t know how long we have been together or who we are. Of course, I cannot tell them what to think, but these things wouldn’t happen if no one took a photo.”

Congratulations on the wedding! What’s your opinion on the lovely couple?
