LGBT couples light up the Kissmas tree


On Dec.20th, 2014, the romantic Christmas night at Xintiandi became rainbow! Even though it was cold outside, the festive atmosphere was super hot. We had more than 40 LGBT couples on stage kissing, bravely showing the same love to others. Their kisses lit up the Christmas tree, and each of them meant a small donation to charity and even larger contribution to our shared future.

On Kissmas rainbow night, we had friends from more than 20 Shanghai’s LGBT groups. Straight couples also came kissing to share the power of love. There were even mothers who let their 7-year old girls kissing to show support for the LGBT community!

Visit the photos page to see all the happy kissing couples!

Join us as we make sure LGBT love lights up the night this holiday season, bringing visibility and hope to Shanghai’s LGBT community.
