The LinQ joined with Human Rights activists, foundations, and CSOs for Chiang Mai Pride Season.

Chiang Mai City, May 28th 2023_As the annual Pride Month celebration is in full swing, the LinQ Foundation, as one of the vital organizers, took part in the Chiang Mai Pride Month event on 28th May 2023, a return-to-the-normal event after COVID-19 that the Tourism Authority of Thailand, Chiang Mai sponsored.  

Human rights activists, Thailand Foundations, and CSOs, including the LinQ Foundation, organized Chiang Mai Pride 2023, coming together with communities from Chiang Mai. The exciting parade, live performance, and many other fun activities make the event well-rounded. All colors and SOGIESC with different nationalities celebrate the pride parade with a loud, clear message and colorful performances.  

Proudly with other partners, LinQ set up a booth at Chiang Mai’s Tourist Spot, the Tha Phae Gate, with SOGIESC quizzes and photo shots for social media posts using the hashtag to raise awareness about the LGBTQ+ community. The attraction at the booth created a buzz, and local people and tourists worldwide participated in the activities and appreciated the effort to bring SOGIESC awareness and advocacy to a diverse audience.  


As part of ‘Bringing Communities Together,’ LinQ also provided free Burmese food at their booth, introducing local Thai people and visitors to traditional Burmese food. In addition, the organization organized a public film screening showcasing five compelling stories from the LGBTQ+ community from Thailand and Myanmar, which tugged at the audience’s heartstrings. The film screening was an excellent opportunity for the audience to learn about the struggles, challenges, and successes of the LGBTQI+ community firsthand.  

LinQ’s community engagement activities at the Pride Month event created a significant impact and a lasting impression on the audience, demonstrating their unwavering commitment to equality and inclusion. Many locals and tourists joined the quizzes, taking photos committed to the equality for LGBTQ pledge with the suggested hashtag and posting on social media platforms, including Facebook, Instagram, and LINE.   

The event was a resounding success, and the collaboration effort enabled the Pride Month celebration to shine even brighter. As the Pride Month celebration continues, we look forward to more such efforts and initiatives by organizations to raise awareness and create a more inclusive and equitable environment for LGBTQ.
