6th LGBTIQ+ Movie Night Bangkok March 2024

Bangkok, 22 February 2024

We look back on a successful 6th edition of the LGBTIQA+ Movie Night at the embassy of the Netherlands.

The Dutch ambassador Remco van Wijngaarden and his great team welcomed us in their lush gardens of the Embassy for the 6th edition of this open air event. Their organisation was outstanding and led to a great atmosphere. 260 people attended the movie night and we got very positive feedback from them. With Paul Overdijk (Chair of Pride@work Thailand) as the MC on the ground (many thanks Paul), we curated the following diverse program with 10 titles from Netherlands, Germany, Thailand and Vietnam:
