Behind QueerMango website is a bunch of awesome queer women
coming from different backgrounds and cultures
and with a passion and commitment to sharing all that is queer.

What we hope to do

QueerMango aims to be a bridge that connects women of queer culture including anyone on the spectrum of LBTQ+, who are living or passing through Thailand and Asia. By highlighting issues and news within queer politics and society, it is our ambition to push forward and become more than just another travel or events reporter website.

Why is there a need for QueerMango?

We noticed that, although there is a strong presence of gay culture with regards to men in Bangkok, information about events, the community and news for lesbian, bi, trans and queer women was lacking. From this sense of detachment, we felt the urgency to create a hub of news, events and opinions that bring together a community of queer cultures within the region.
