TAT reach out to the NY Pride March to attract more LGBT tourists to Thailand

By The Thaiger

The Tourism Authority of Thailand is reaching out to the US LGBT community to help broaden Thailand’s tourism base and attract more travellers. The TAT sent a contingent to New York’s annual pride parade, held on World Pride Day, to lure more tourists to the Kingdom. The parade was held last Sunday.

 

TAT are using the branding “Go Thai Be Free” in their ‘come to Thailand’ marketing campaign aimed at the large US LGBT base.

(LGBT, LGBTQ, GLBT – all acronyms listing people identifying as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer)

 

The director of the TAT office in New York, Charinya Kiatlapnachai, says they were marketing at the event to encourage LGBT tourists to visit Thailand. The TAT say statistics show that 5 million US citizens identify under the LGBT banner. The TAT has also been promoting the message of Thailand being a safe and fun travel destination for LGBT travellers in the Latin American market where the target audience reaches more than 20 million potential travellers.

 

NY Pride Event organisers say there were about  150,000 marchers in the actual parade and more than 4 million visitors to the city to watch the event. The annual pride march, held in many cities around the world, commemorates the ‘Stonewall Uprising’, an event seen as triggering the modern LGBT movement. This year was the 50th anniversary of Stonewall.

Talk about clutching at straws to get visitors . If they go to Oz, beyond the black stump ,they might like to encourage the ' Wombats of woop - woop ' to pay a visit .......maybe be not at 21B - $ .

There is a "HUB" you missed.

 

According to Paul Chambers, a professor at Chiang Mai University's Institute for South-East Asian Affairs, says there have been almost 30 coup attempts in Thailand (whether successful or unsuccessful) since 1912

Why do they keep using the word "lure" ?

I guess this definition from vocabulary.com has it about right:

"to provoke someone to do something through (often false or exaggerated) promises or persuasion"

The other day they were "touting" for tourists from visitors from N.Africa,middle east.

things must be getting desperate. "Tout" =   attempt to sell (something), typically by pestering people in an aggressive or bold manner.yeh that sounds right,maybe employing ladyboys

 from Pattaya.

I needed to Google the "I" and "Q" in LBGTIQ.

 

Surely they could buy a few vowels and make a pretty cool catch all phrase.

Gay means happy , queer means odd.  Did when I were a lad . LGBT  I think of it as  Lets Go By Train.

I'm not queer but my Ladyboy boy friend might be.

Yes: 'lure' always suggests 'luring people to their doom' - enticing the unaware and guileless to step into undreamed-of territories of danger!
