The Thai government is not happy with the idea of the gay parade and they have been trying to block it. But the organizers are not giving up. They are going to try to find a new venue for the event.

The organizers of Thailand’s first gay parade, which was scheduled for June 2020, said on Thursday that they had been forced to cancel it because of pressure from officials and a lack of support from companies. The decision came after officials in Bangkok announced that they would refuse permission for the event to take place in the capital, citing security concerns.
