Bangkok’s Standard: All-In for June Pride Month Extravaganza!

The Standard, Bangkok Mahanakhon, is going all out for Pride Month this June to celebrate diversity, individuality, and all that you are. We have lined up a ton of activities, promotions and of course, delicious cocktails just for the occasion!

Here’s what’s happening this month:

Come and get ready with us for the “Bangkok Pride 2023 Parade” on Sunday, 4th June!

In support and in solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community both inside and outside of our company, we have organized Pride themed activities at The Parlor which will serve as the “pre-event” venue for the “Bangkok Pride 2023 Parade” for those wishing to join the Pride Parade. We’re excited to be a part of this growing movement!  Co-hosted by non-profit org. Naruement Pride and Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA), the theme this year is “Beyond Gender”, and will celebrate all communities, diversities and expressions of self. The parade will kick off at 14.00 at BACC, and will move onto Rama 1 Road towards Central World for an afternoon of activities and celebrations.

In collaboration with WIBWABWUB, a Bangkok-based supplier of biodegradable glitter service, guests can get into the spirit of the Parade; glamming up with make-up and face painting by professional artists before they hop on our Pride bus to join the start of the celebratory Parade at BACC.

Come & join us! We can’t wait to celebrate the community and have fun with you all.

The collection was inspired by The Standard Bangkok’s multi-colored, quirky and eclectic rooms and interior, making it a truly unique product line.

I WANNA BANGKOK is a fashion brand whose goal is to find new ways to promote our beloved capital instead of the usual icons of temples or tuk tuks.
