    Thai gay activists raise Pride flags in Bangkok

    Hundreds of Thai gay activists have raised rainbow flags in Bangkok during a pro-democracy rally in the capital.

    They danced and sang in the city centre, where police were deployed. There were no reports of any violence.
    Saturday's rally was the latest in a series of youth-led protests calling for the government to resign.

    General Prayuth Chan-ocha seized power in a coup in 2014, and was later named as prime minister by the military-appointed parliament.

    Saturday's Rally was a colourful event

    Police officers were deployed for what was a peaceful gathering"We're here today mainly to call for democracy. Once we achieve democracy, equal rights will follow," a young protester told Reuters.

    He said that LGBT groups in Thailand "do not yet have equal rights in society, so we're calling for both democracy and equality".
    In recent days Thai pro-democracy activists have been defying a government ban on public gatherings amid an ongoing coronavirus outbreak in the country in south-east Asia.

    Democracy should be imposed from the top end not the bottom. The people will only support equal rights for lgbt at some point after they have equal rights for themselves.

    Interesting that men who identify as women would be parading at this time. The annual drawing of the balls for military service. Just saying.

    ...your interest may be misplaced: cross-dressers don't necessarily identify as women...
