ShanghaiPRIDE Theatre Festival (ShPTF) wrapped up on June 28th, 2015, a few days after the seventh annual ShanghaiPRIDE Festival.MORE…
Shanghai, June 26, 2015—The seventh annual ShanghaiPRIDE festival wrapped up on June 21 following more than a week’s worth of social, cultural and educational events exploring the theme “Love Is Our Future” (爱予未来 ai yu weilai). Almost 6,000 attendees joined the ShanghaiPRIDE organizers in raising LGBTQ awareness and giving Shanghai a glimpse of a future in which tolerance and acceptance are the norm.
The stage turns ‘gay’ because of you, and ‘not gay’ because of you.
No matter what your colour is, show us your ‘gay wisdom’.
This summer, FLYIMPROV and ShanghaiPRIDE will bring you a big colour collision: an improvised play “Colours”. No matter what your colour is, show us your ‘gay wisdom’, participate in this dynamic play-creation, and use colourful elements and diverse perspectives to ignite the artistic sparks.
We have just started a holding hands campaign.
See if we can hold hands around the world..
Just need to take a photo with you and someone holding hands and post on FB, weibo, or Instagram.
Remember to #shanghaipride.
Let’s see how far and wide we can go!

This summer, we will host a sharing session with our community again. We continue to take this big step. Our goal is for you to leave more informed about organizations, groups and individuals who are putting much effort against a variety of issues and their feedback. Some information is scientific knowledge, development on prevention and care, and persistent stigmas and existing discrimination. While attending this panel discussion, you will learn what the efforts and challenges of local and global organizations are, and you will gain knowledge needed to fight the epidemic and how to provide for those who are living with the virus.
Whether you are part of the LGBT community or an ally, if you want to find out
what activities there are or what other organizations are around us, come out to the ShanghaiPRIDE 2015 LGBT Groups Open Day. Over 20 LGBT organizations, which include media, social networks and businesses, will be showcasing their activities.
