Bangkok Pride – Back After 11 Years




Bangkok, one of the gayest destinations in Asia, will be holding its first ever Pride festival this coming summer.

The six-day celebration, which will go from 15 to 20 May, is known to be the first of its kind held in the country’s capitol since 2006.

Jointly organised by Out BKK, Rainbow Sky Association of Thailand, QueerMango, Bangkokrainbow and the HIV Foundation Asia, Bangkok Pride ‘aims to promote gender equality and equal rights while raising awareness for LGBT-related health issues,’ reports BK Magazine.

Besides lots of partying, the festival will also have workshops, film festivals and other social events happening across the city.

The highlight of the festival, being the Pride parade, will be held on 20 May. More information on the route and performances have yet been released.

According to BK Magazine, Thailand’s only regular Pride parade takes place in Phuket every April.

Though, one event that draws thousands of gay tourist to Thailand each year is the famous Songkran festival which falls in the month of April and is marked by the splashing of water.
