I posted this a long time ago and now it's open. Few views and no comments, as expected! Not about door hinges after all. I have not gone yet but plan to soon. I post my review latter. Anyone going?

"The exhibition, titled “Spectrosynthesis II—Exposure of Tolerance: LGBTQ in Southeast Asia,” is making its second stop on a tour that began at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Taipei in 2017. It is sponsored by the Sunpride Foundation, an organization dedicated to promoting the creative history of the LGBTQ community."

I went today and it was excellent and I encourage all to attend this art exhibit. It's free. I plan on going back again to see it before it closes and spend more time. I especially liked a unique two facing screen art interpretation of 'Life and Death in Venice' with a young Asian Tadzio.

I should not have went on a weekend as there were a lot of people. Lots of local gay attendees, in pairs, groups and alone. I tried to explain 'Death in Venice' to some young cute guy but I don't think he got it. There were students, families, tourists and straight couple too.

And, no it's not coming to Pattaya.
If you live in Pattaya or are there visiting It's my opinion that this art exhibit is worth the trip to Bangkok.

Really...Really? Not one board member has went to this major LGBTQ event? Here's one more photo:

Well at least someone is trying to broaden our horizons.

That exhibition goes some distance over my head though. Hopefully some more sophisticated members will get it.

Had I been in town I'd have gone. I rarely miss a stop there to see what's on exhibit.

Have been a week or so ago on stop over to further.......remember then was also a fair across in the Nat. Stadium grounds.
Was really much more impressed and touched by the fotoś of the Princess above it on 2 floors, visits to Peru, East-Timur and more.
There are stern warnings for those who need that that this exhibiton may be shocking and revealing. For those not so well known; its in BACC w all-white centre just across from the famous MBK=MahBoonKrong (also a well known rice brand) shopping centre, where most of the smiling and friendly vendors are actually Burmese.
