WE'RE BUSY UPDATING OUR WEBSITE FOR 2019. Most info is out of date.
&PROUD is back and bigger than ever in 2019. We can’t believe how much the event has grown since our first edition of the film festival at the French Institute. And last year’s first public event at Thakin Mya Park was such a success that we are now changing the name of our event to YANGON PRIDE! What better way to celebrate our fifth anniversary.
Yangon Pride will be at Thakin Mya Park From January 25 – 27, and then at the French Institute from February 1 – 3.
Our organization will still be called &PROUD – and we now also organise &PROUD Mandalay, &PROUD On The Road, and have just opened &PROUD Studio in Sanchaung. Office by day, Dance studio by night.
With so much going on we’re sure it’s going to be an incredibly exciting year! As always our festival is going to be packed with performances, films, debates, games and parties – spreading our glitter further than ever before.
Some of the exciting things we’re planning are a big drag night with the best of the best of Yangon’s drag scene. We’ve got queer film from Southeast Asia and as far as Syria, DJ nights, after parties and a very special surprise on the Yangon River that we’re working on.
So block your calendar for January 25 – February 3 and see you at Yangon Pride!
