Phuket Gay Festival set to earn Bt100 million - TNA, March 19, 2005
The pink baht will help revive the tsunami-damaged tourism industry on the southern island of Phuket next month when over 5,000 homosexuals from across the world descend on the island for the province’s 6th annual Gay Festival.
According to Mr. Chanok Kaewsrinual, head of the Phuket Gay Association, the festival on Patong Beach on 7-10 April will include a range of events, including the unmissable drag parade...
Pol. Col. Theeraphol Thipcharoen, superintendent of Kathu district police station, also noted that the event was important to help Phuket shrug off its unearned image as a destination for sex tourists, including those engaging in underage sex with young rent boys. According to the police superintendent, child prostitution in fact does not occur anywhere in Phuket.
