Gay Pride Celebration Returns To Chiang Mai For The First Time in TEN YEARS! A hugely influential and very poignant event for the LGBT community in Thailand, Chiang Mai Gay Pride returns on the 10th anniversary of the cancelled one in 2009. Join and support the LGBT network in Thailand and enjoy a series of LGBT events, talks and fun activities at this community event in central Chiang Mai.


A Landmark Celebration Halted By Violence


On February 21st 2009, the LGBT Pride celebration was sadly cancelled due to overwhelming threats of violence. This date is still regarded as the darkest day in Chiang Mai’s LGBT history, as hundreds of ‘thugs’ and supporters of the UDD Red Shirt society launched physical threats towards Gay Pride participants. Following the verbal abuse and frightening level of risks, the march and LGBT Gay Pride celebrations were forced to be cancelled.
