Phuket PrideOn 19th October 2014 – 6 months before the week begins, The Phuket Loves You Club (PLU) officially launched Phuket Pride week 2015. Although the dates have been published since the end of Pride week 2014, the PLU have now launched two web banners and announced the 2015 theme ‘Freedom to Live’ the full explanation is shown on their web site which contains the following extracts:

“In Thailand, individuals who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT) experience many daily challenges not experienced by non-LGBT residents. They are often labelled as being promiscuous, self-indulgent and deserving of little respect.

So we hope that during Phuket Pride week 2015, all LGBT residents and tourists of Phuket can come and celebrate their right to live their lives as they wish and to be proud of being who they were born to be. We also invite our ‘Straight’ friends to join us in the week’s events; together we will break down these barriers and thus have more freedom to live in harmony with the rest of the community in Phuket and Thailand.

HIV infection in Phuket is at a very high level, Over the past 3 years, PLU Club has organised Phuket Pride week and raised over 600,000 baht, much of which has been have be spent on helping people with HIV, providing free condoms, providing free HIV testing and providing information on HIV. With knowledge, free access to condoms and testing, we are addressing another side of the Freedom To Live”

The week will be 7 days of fun celebrations, including Pool Parties, Sports events, Day trips, A Gala Dinner, Beach party, Grand Auction and other fund raising events around Phuket. The week’s final programme will be announced in early March 2015.
