Patrick Both, General Manager of Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok, said: “The LGBTQI + community is our family. Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok from the very beginning has celebrated diversity and inclusion, but more than this: we celebrate being yourself.” Patrick also said they expected the festival to get bigger each year as the pandemic situation improves.

“PRIDE is a celebration of rights, equality and life, and at the hotel, we want to wave that rainbow flag for all to see,” Patrick added.

Admission to the screenings is free. Moreover, attendees will be able to purchase exclusive Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok food and beverages during the festival. To reserve seats or for more information, please contact +66 2 056 9999 or email
