GLBT (Gay Lesbian Bi Transgender) Information.
Thailand is one of the most welcoming places in the
world for gays, lesbians and transgenders who respect Thai
laws and customs.
Persons convicted of sex with a minor face immediate arrest
and harsh penalties including life imprisonment. Persons who
have sex with a prostitute below the age of 18 face arrest,
fine and imprisonment. You must be 20 years of age to enter
a night club. Recreational drug use is illegal and surprise
drug testing may take place at popular night spots. Nudity,
at beaches or in saunas, is against Thai custom.
Pride festivals in Thailand
Bangkok, Phuket and Pattaya have yearly gay pride festivals. If you want to visit be sure you have a room reservation well in advance.
