In many ways, Bangkok is a multicultural city, not simply in terms of sexuality. If we welcome change, we can have happy lives. Among the notable attendees were representatives from political parties, foreign embassies, the commercial sector, and even Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-office cha’s.
In the United States, same-sex marriage, civil unions, domestic partnerships, unregistered cohabitations, and any other kind of same-sex relationship is prohibited. On the other side, Bangkok’s LGBT activists are striving for change. Thai society is extremely traditional, despite its reputation as a haven for LGBT rights. Thai law forbids same-sex couples from legally marrying. Marriage can only be contracted between a man and a woman, according to Thailand’s Civil and Commercial Code. The march will begin at 4 p.m. at Maha Uma Devi Temple, a Hindu temple known as ‘Wat Khaek’ or ‘South Asian temple’ in Thai slang. On Pan and Silom Roads, the temple can be found. According to Promsorn Veerathamjari, a sex workers’ spokesman, this year’s organizers plan to make the pride march “a significant event on the calendar, equivalent to Songkran or Loy Krathong.” One of the most well-known attendees at the Pride press conference was Bangkok Governor-elect Chadchart Sittipunt, who was present as a spectator. According to Chadchat’s plan, June would be designated as “Pride month.” Feminist activist Siri “Tata” Nilphruek said during a press conference yesterday that in the past, Bangkok’s pride parades were just street demonstrations. Pride Month is approaching cities all around the world, including Bangkok. On June 5, the city will hold its first’real’ pride parade.
