The annual Pattaya Pride community festival moved out of Boyz Town and into downtown with its Rainbow Festival at Central Festival Pattaya Beach.
Festivities kicked off with a colorful parade down Beach Road featuring floats from bars, transgender cabaret performers, and HIV charities. Many wore lavish costumes, with Cupid being a favorite.
Singer Lookpad Cholanan capped the event with a mini concert.
The event was heavily supported by the YWCA Bangkok-Pattaya Center, Central Festival and city hall. The main activities took place on the ground floor of the mall where people could attend workshops, organize rainbow weddings and more.
