Pattaya —

Central Pattaya shopping center is preparing to host the “Pattaya International Pride Festival 2024,” with this year’s edition promising to be the biggest.

The “Pride For All” themed festival will take place from June 21st to 23rd, 2024, at Central Pattaya. The highlight of the festival is the Pride Parade, which will be held on June 22nd at 4:00 PM.

The parade will snake its way along Pattaya Beach, featuring over 5,000 participants from more than 100 LGBTQ+ organizations, allies, and even celebrities. Registration for those interested in walking in the parade will be open from noon to 3:00 PM on the same day at Central Marina.

Following the parade, festivities will shift to the Central Pattaya Beach Stage for a night filled with live music and entertainment. Attendees can expect performances by popular Thai singers such as Prang Prangthip and Praeja Yanwannathan, alongside DJ sets and special shows.

The festival also includes two special competitions – Miss Healthy Queen 2024 on June 21st and One Man One Woman on the Beach 2024 on June 23rd, both starting at 6:00 PM.

This year’s pride parade comes only days after the historic passing of the marriage equality act which will allow same sex marriage in Thailand, following Nepal and Taiwan in Asia and the first country to allow this in South East Asia.
