Thai and Filipino LGBTQ clashed in Soi Sukhumvit 11 last night

Written by World Events

A large group of Thai LGBTQ+ people rallied in front of a hotel in Sukhumvit Soi 11 in Bangkok late Monday night, to confront a group of Filipino LGBTQ+ people following a violent incident early yesterday involving members of the two groups in front of a food shop near the Nana BTS station.

A member of the Thai group alleged that about 20 Filipino LGBTQ+ members attacked four Thais and then posted a clip of the incident on social media, in a way they considered to be an insult to the Thais. Two Thais were injured in the incident.

The clip went viral and became the hot topic of the town in social media platforms and the main media.

They said that the rally was intended to defend the dignity of Thai LGBTQ+ people.

Officers from Lumpini police station were dispatched to the scene, to prevent the confrontation from intensifying, and invited the two groups to the police station to settle their dispute, with the promise of justice for both sides.

Pol Col Yingyos Suwanno, the police superintendent, reportedly said that he would check the papers of the Filipinos, to find out if they have work permits.

He then urged the Thais to disperse, a request with which they complied.
