Bangkok Pride Parade demands reforms and rights for sex workers


The Thai LGBT community was joined by anti-government protesters in yesterday’s Pride Parade in Bangkok, which travelled from Sam Yan intersection to Silom. The parade took on a more political tone this year and was calling for democracy and equal rights, amid the usual demands for the resignation of Thai PM Prayut Chan-o-cha and reforms to the role of the monarchy. Some 2,000 people had joined the march by the time it reached Silom. The parade was titled “Parade of the Proletarians”. The usually colourful pride parade took on a more sombre tone as the “Seritoey Plus”group of black-clad people gathered at Sam Yan intersection around 3.30pm. Many of the marchers were dressed in black. The protest disbanded peacefully at 9pm.
