An Island Pride! Phuket Gay Pride will leave you breathless.
Phuket voted one of Conde Nast’s Magazines top ten tropical resort destinations in the world. And is the setting for the gay pride festival held over a six day period with the parade being on the final Sunday.
The Phuket Gay Pride festival has been held every year in one form or another since 1999. New organisers, the Phuket Loves You Club, took over the event recently and since then it’s been held in April.
Most of the festival action takes place in Patong beach, which has a thriving gay-oriented entertainment industry, and the local municipality is supportive of the event. Those looking for a gay nightlife scene in Phuket will find it year round here, mainly in the Soi Paradise area of Patong.
Gay pride festival has become a very popular event in Phuket attracting record numbers of visitors from around the world last year, the gay area is Patong Beach, where you will find all the gay bars and clubs, booking your stay early is highly recommended, as the best accommodation books out fast.
