“The Art of Togetherness” – Thailand Pride 2024 activities for Pride Month!

By June 10, 2024 Regional

It’s time to be proud of yourselves and come join in celebrating the road to marriage equal for all with Thailand Pride! 

Thailand Pride 2024 Organizing Committee along with community organizations, business sector, government sector join hands to organize Thailand Pride @ Bangkapi with the concept of “The Art of Togetherness” which held a press conference on 29 May 2024. 

The event is another opportunity to raise your rainbow flags, and proudly be who you are in the Bangkapi district area of Bangkok to mark the end of Pride Month on Saturday 29 June 2024.

As Thailand gears up for LGBTQI marriage equality, there are other laws and policy issues that we still need to advance.

“Currently, LGBTQI people cannot donate blood, and some companies still insist on compulsory HIV testing which is not only in violation of human rights but it is also illegal, and they need to be brought to justice,”

commented Wattana Keiangpa, APCOM Foundation Board member, who is living with HIV,

“we, the community therefore calls for an Anti-discrimination Bill as a mechanism for filing complaints, providing remedies, determining penalties, and providing protection for our community to be protected,”

he continues.

The event is generously supported by the Ministry of Social Development and Human Security, Ministry of Justice, Tourism Authority of Thailand, Member of the House of Representatives of Pheu Thai Party, and Progressive Party, Bang Kapi District, Foundation for Sustainable Cities and Communities,The Mall Company Group Limited, Nmark Plaza Shopping Center and Happyland Center, Lotus Bang Kapi. 

Along with the community organizing committee members from the Rainbow Sky Association of Thailand, Bangkok Rainbow Organization and Apcom Foundation – we are very proud and humbled to be bringing  Thailand Pride 2024 @ Bangkapi The Art of Togetherness to the public. 

“The Art of Togetherness” as the main theme that embraces all diversity and paves the way for an open society that embraces and supports each other. 

There will be an important highlight on Saturday, June 29, 2024 with the Pride Parade to foster 

understanding and compassion for each other, it is also what we all need to create a livable society.

The procession will start at 13:00 from the National Institute of Development Administration (NIDA) and ends when reaching The Mall Life Store Bangkapi.
