About us – Phuket Loves You Club
Phuket Loves You club (PLU) is a non-profit organization made up of Thais, Farang expats and LGBT-friendly businesses throughout Phuket with a common goal of building a stronger sense of community for all the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender) people living in Phuket.
The (PLU) Phuket Loves You has 3 main objectives:
Although Phuket Pride has been running for many years, 2012 was the year that PLU organised it. Although we only had 4 months to organise it,together with other events such as Mr Gay Phuket by Fong Kaew, Phuket Pride week raised almost 300,000 Baht for charity. We were also able to build good foundations for future years Pride weeks to enable us all to grow Phuket Pride week into a truly international event.
We are a group of LGBT & LGBT friendly businesses and residents, who have many years of organizing Pride Celebrations. We accept, that as farangs with business and retirement visa’s and work permits, we are restricted in how much of an active part we can play and operate within the limits of Thai law.
