Thailand is renowned for its international hospitals, nightlife and thriving LGBT community. But this does not mean that everything in Bangkok is accessible or progressive. Regarding medications and check-ups, Bangkok seems to be fairly good. You don't need a prescription for any contraception, including emergency contraception, and it can be cheaply purchased at pharmacies. There is heightened STD awareness, so there are a number of STD testing facilities, and Thailand is the only country in Southeast Asia with any PreP trials/studies, as of 2016. As for LGBT resources, Silom is considered the main gay area of Bangkok, especially Soi 2 and Soi 4.
