Bangkok Pride announced an open invitation for the public to join the Bangkok Pride Parade festival, set to take place along Rama I Road in Pathumwan. Scheduled for June 1, the event will feature the LGBTQ+ community marching on what has been dubbed the rainbow road of equality.

The pride parade will follow the Celebration of Love theme and will include five main processions, each representing a different aspect of love. These processions are Love Wins (red), Love for Identity (yellow), Love for Dignity (green), Love for Peace and Earth (blue), and Love for Freedom (purple).

The festival, which is free for everyone to attend, offers participants a platform to express and showcase their unique definitions of love. The event will start at the National Stadium and end at the Ratchaprasong Intersection, covering a distance of 2.5 kilometres.

Gathering for the parade will kick off at 2pm in front of the Nimibutr Building at the National Stadium. From there, the participants will proceed along Rama I Road towards the Ratchaprasong Intersection, reported The Pattaya News.

Bangkok Pride’s announcement on X, formerly Twitter, highlights the inclusive nature of the event, encouraging all to join in and celebrate love in its many forms.

In related news, Thailand is gearing up to host a five-day Pride event in Bangkok, aiming to establish itself as Asia’s rainbow capital. This event, organised by the government alongside private and civil sectors, will feature a series of activities running from May 31 to June 4 under the theme Celebration of Love.

Ann Chumaporn, founder and president of the Bangkok Pride Parade, revealed that the festivities include a parade, concerts, public activities, and the Bangkok Pride Forum. She emphasised that the extended duration of this year’s event is intended to demonstrate Thailand’s capability to host major events like the 2025 Inter Pride Conference and the 2030 World Pride Parade.
