Leading Thai gay activist Natee Teerarojjanapongs says he may sue the American International Assurance Company for refusing to sell him a life insurance policy.

Natee claims a sales agent told him AIA does not insure gays or bisexuals.

“We need equal treatment,” Natee told the local newspaper Nation. “We will file a petition to the Administration Court because such behavior violates the 2007 Constitution.”

The company denies it excludes particular groups of people across the board yet also acknowledged it rejects applicants who face a higher risk of HIV infection, according to the Bangkok Post.
