Where To Party In Bangkok For Pride: June 21-30
Ever since the Stonewall Riots of 1969, the month of June serves to honour the LGBTQ+ community, celebrating queerness, diversity and the fight for rights, dignity and equality. As this year marks the 50th anniversary of the uprising and with Bangkok’s ever-blooming LGBTQ+ scene, here are the hottest places to party for Pride for the rest of the month. Everyone—whether a member or ally of the community—is welcome.
