4 JUN – Kimpton Maa-lai Bangkok Proudly Hosts the 2nd Edition of LGBTQI+ Film Festival

Saturday, June 4, 2022

(13th May 2022 – Bangkok, Thailand) – With such a tremendous success in 2021, Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok is hosting the LGBTQI+ Film Festival again this June, showcasing more classic LGBTQI+ films as part of an exclusive screening in collaboration with U.S. Embassy, Goethe Institute and Alliance Française Bangkok. 

“Proud and Loud. It’s how we’ve always been when it comes to Pride. It’s not just a day or a month, it’s woven into the very fiber of who we are at Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok, but more than this: we celebrate being yourself,”  

“We celebrate our LGBTQI+ community always and this film festival is something that we wish to continue each year to engage with LGBTQI+ community. 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 Both, Area General Manager Luxury & Lifestyle – an IHG Thailand.
