Kenneth J. Miller || Phuket Pride

Meet Kenneth J. Miller, one of the organizers of Phuket Pride.

On June 28th, 1969 the Stonewall Riots kicked off a larger gay rights movement in the USA.

In 1970, the first gay pride marches took place in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago – today pride parades are taking place all around the world.

In 2018, I wanted to know who the people organizing today’s pride parades are, what the marches mean to them, and met wonderfully powerful, loving and kind people from places, which might not be the first ones that come to mind, when we think of queer love.

See all Faces of Pride.

Kenneth J. Miller – Phuket Pride

What’s your name and age?
My name is Kenneth J. Miller, and I’m 62 years old.

Since when have you been involved with Phuket Pride?
Since 2011

Why do you think Phuket Pride is important?
Pride is important because it puts a face of the community out to the generate public.

Pride shows that those in our community who are dealing with being LGBT that they are not alone. Pride shows the inequalities that our community experiences on a daily basics. Pride brings together those who want to help in address health or social issues. Pride empowers our youth to be leaders in our fight for equality. Pride shows hope.

What is one (or two) remarkable thing(s) that has/have happened at Phuket Pride?
When we first started producing Pride, we determined that HIV/AIDs was and sadly is still a major health issue. There was no compensative prevention program offered. Mobile testing was only done once a year for individuals to know their HIV Status. There was no free condoms available, Thai sex workers needed to purchase their own. Through hard work, we got a Condom sponsor to donate over 100K condoms and lube each year. For four years, we funded three additional HIV Testing in the gay area. The rate of HIV was 25% in 2012 and by 2017, we saw the rate drop down to 11%. With Prep being introduced in the Gay community, there is now no compensative prevention program. The feeling now is that with Prep, you can treat the disease away.

What do you do when you are not organizing Phuket Pride? 
I am the General Manager for a Gay Friendly hotel.

What do you like to do in your free time?
I volunteer for a NGO who works to provide a safe home for Thai women and children who are affected or infected with HIV/Aids

Is there something you would like to say to the rest of the LGBT+ community? 
Never stop fighting for your rights. We are all family now get over it.

OUR WORLD NEEDS CHANGE.
Our world needs you.
In your full power.

Start exploring new ways to be in this world.

How can you benefit from coaching? Life is precious, and it's a limited period of time we have on this earth, in this form. We can use this time to grow, experience, love, serve and learn.

Each of us gets to choose in every moment how their life is going to continue, but often we don't make the choices we want, but the ones we think are expected from us. And that leads to chaos, unhappiness and confusion because we're not aligned with our inner knowing.

Once we realize that we have the power to choose and change our circumstances, life enters into a more natural flow.

But to get there, we have some unlearning to do. We need to uncover the subconscious believes that keep us stuck, we need to leave our comfort zones and stretch ourselves, and we have to form new habits that serve us better. And that's what I'm here for, I will help you to become joyfully interdependent.

If you would like to work with me as a coach, I can guide you to find new options that are more aligned with your inner knowing, and to learn to trust your inner voice, to clear blockages that have been holding you back and to open up space for what really matters in your life. The best way to work with me this year is by joining the I AM CREATOR School as a VIP member with individual coaching.

On this journey you can find clarity, confidence, love, freedom, connection and so much more.
