Phuket very tolerant of gay lifestyles: Gazette poll

Published

 on 

PHUKET: Phuket society is very tolerant of people with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) lifestyles, according to the results of the latest Phuket Gazette readers’ poll.

The poll, run to coincide with the Phuket Pride Festival held in Patong late last month, asked readers: “Overall, how tolerant is Phuket society of LGBT lifestyles compared to other places you have lived in or visited?”

More than three-quarters of readers overall (77.4%) thought Phuket society was either “tolerant” or “very tolerant”, compared with 8.8% of readers who thought it was either “intolerant” or “very intolerant”.

The most popular reply was “very tolerant” at 46%.

In a breakdown by demographic, tourists were most likely to find Phuket very tolerant (49%), followed by expats (46%) and Thais (33%).
