Asian Faeries

a gay men’s gathering
in the faerie tradition
February 14-24, 2019

Koh Yao Yai, Thailand

The 16th Annual Asian Faerie Gathering will be from Thursday February 14 to Sunday, February 24, 2019

Faeries from around the world will converge on the magical island of Koh Yao Yai near Phuket, Thailand, for a week of fun, connection and relaxation. Previous gatherings found 35 faeries coming to our island paradise from the US, Middle East, Europe, Australia and all over Asia. Please join us as we celebrate our 16th annual Asian Faerie gathering.

This is a non-profit event organized by a diverse group of men living in Thailand, SE Asia, and the USA. The idea is for gay people from all over the world to meet in a quiet and beautiful natural setting and get to know each other and ourselves better. We will have morning heart circles, nature walks, swimming, snorkeling and maybe a cross-cultural romance or two. We improvise our activities as we go through the week, but please plan on a talent show, a fund-raising auction, and making new friends.

The gathering site will be on the mostly undeveloped island of Koh Yao Yai. We look forward to another fabulous adventure of fun and self discovery. Look up the island on Google Earth or visit our photo galleries from past gatherings at

Some of us will gather in Bangkok before and after the gathering, so let us know if you are passing through Bangkok as well as when you plan to arrive in Phuket for the gathering.

The gathering itself will be a ten days long. You are welcome to stay with us for the entire length of the gathering if you can, but coming for only a few days is also OK.

We will offer limited travel and housing scholarships for those wanting to attend from developing countries in South and Southeast Asia such as Vietnam, Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, Bangladesh, etc. Priority will go to those working or volunteering to improve life in their LGTBQAI community, nation or region. If you need financial support to be able to attend, please complete the scholarship request section on the Registration Page and return to before January 1, 2019.

More information and Staying In Touch:

on FaceBook:

We will communicate prior to the gathering only via a WhatsApp group. If you are planning to attend the gathering and want to stay informed prior to arrival, please send us your whatsapp cell phone number along with your registration.

We have been gathering in the USA since 1979, in Europe since 1995 and in Thailand since 2004.
