In 2014, Patrick Sun founded SUNPRIDE FOUNDATION, a non-profit that aims to promote a more equitable world for LGBTQ people and their allies, through the exhibition and preservation of contemporary art. He’s also made it his personal mission to inspire young, up-and-coming artists to find their voice and channel creative energy towards change. SUNPRIDE has presented two wildly successful exhibitions in Taipei and Bangkok, Spectrosynthesis I & II, and is already planning the next one.
How did Patrick make the journey from property developer to a patron of the arts? What have been the challenges along the way, changing hearts and minds in support of the LGBTQ movement? Why doesn’t he consider himself an activist? Find out all this and more in my conversation with this remarkable and inspiring individual.
