Despite the heavy rains, over 1,000 LGBTI people and allies gathered in Ho Chi Minh City for the public IDAHOT events that were organised by the organisation ICS. Across Vietnam, the IDAHOT events were a major success.

The bad weather conditions did not hold back the community to have a fantastic turnout at the IDAHOT events. Earlier, PFLAG had also organised a gathering of members of the LGBTI community and their families.
Meanwhile, in Hanoi people gathered for ‘BUBU TOWN’, a town of freedom, tolerance and equality, a place that embraces diversity and promotes freedom of expression of all kinds. BUBU stands for the town’s slogan: “BE UNIQUE. BE U”
