Pride comes to Phuket – April 23 to 28, 2012. Phuket Loves You (PLU) Club is the organization selected to produce this year’s pride celebration.
The goal for this year’s pride celebration is to create a stronger sense of community within the Thai and Farang communities in Phuket which is why this year’s theme, chosen by the Phuket Pride committee, is “Join our Family”
This year’s Pride logo, created by Baz Anthony Hammer, represents our island paradise: the rainbow colours represent the various LGBT communities on Phuket. Each leaf is connected to the heart of our community. The large and small circles represent the small and large LGBT community groups on Phuket. The goal, through this logo, is to show how we are all interconnected and how by working to strengthen the relationship that binds us together; we are able to address the inequalities that we experience on a daily basis.
Given this direction, the Phuket Pride Committee, will focus on increasing awareness of HIV/AIDs and STD in the LGBT communities and the services provided for those affected. PLU Club is committed to create a positive change for our Phuket community by pledging to donate a percentage of its profits from its Pride Celebration to selective organisation(s) that work towards achieving PLU Club’s goals.
This year, Phuket Pride will be an island-wide celebration.
