Keep the Pride Month momentum going with even more LGBTQ+-related activities, accompanied by a weekend full of good food and good music.
Get ready to celebrate the various identities under the LGBTQ+ umbrella at one of the biggest Pride events in Thailand. Bangkok Pride: Rainbowtopia will be taking place at the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC) and is hosted by SPECTRUM Thailand, a media company that highlights gender and human rights. A product of collaboration with queer artists, the Thai film industry, and sexual health clinics, the event is separated into six booths inspired by the six colours on the Pride Flag. Each zone will have unique activities to explore everything from mental health services, panel discussions, free viewing of LGBTQ+ films, and live music.
