Thailand to proactively seek LGBT tourism arrivals from Latin America

The Bangkok Post reports that the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is set to increase tourism arrivals from Latin America.

Last week the TAT organised the first meeting of some 40 tourism operators from Latin America, including from Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Chile and Colombia, along with Thai operators.  In contrast to countries such as Brazil, where sectarian politics now actively discourage such inbound international LGBT tourism, Thailand has realised the opportunity and is now proactively seeking to promote itself as an LGBT friendly destination.
Jefferson Santos, the TAT representative to South America, is reported to have said ‘we aim to promote Thailand as a LGBT-friendly destination and show them a safe tourism space by participating in the LGBT travel forum in Sao Paulo, Brazil this June’.
