In partnership with the Tourism Authority of Thailand, The LGBT+ Travel Symposium hosted more than 30 of the world’s leading LGBT+ buyers and media in Bangkok in September 2019 to promote diversity. Despite this encouraging step, LGBT+ relationships are still a sensitive topic and remains taboo in some parts of Asia.
