Tradey No Shadey—The EmQuartier & Sansiri's Pride Charity Market—Is On This Weekend!
Just as Thailand moves forward in legalising same-sex unions, this weekend The EmQuartier and leading real estate developer Sansiri are hosting together a Pride Charity Market Place, cheekily titled Tradey No Shadey (because let's throw money, not shade this weekend). Showcasing goods and vendors of the local LGBT+ community, the market takes place at the Helix Garden on the 5th floor of The EmQuartier shopping complex from 10am to 7pm this Saturday and Sunday. Don't miss out on the opportunity to shop for some of your favourite local brands, including Leisure Project, Kanapot, Issue, 99th and Theatre, while enjoying bites from food vendors like Cute Kitchen, Just Crab Pls and Take A Wrap.
If you plan your visit strategically, you can also get a chance to catch performances by some of your favourite LGBT celebrities and entertainers. Here's the entertainment schedule:
Most importantly, part of the proceeds from sales at the charity market will be donated to the Rainbow Sky Association of Thailand (RSAT) to support LGBT youths in Thailand as they transition to adulthood.
If you're heading there this weekend and take some snaps for the 'gram, don't forget to hashtag #sansirifamily #madeforyou and #sansiripride to connect with the community. Have a nice weekend!
