Queer Talks – Films & Femininity


Join us for our first QT FILM NIGHT!

Dichotomy of female representation in media

How does mass media influence our culture and values? Roles of women are often portrayed as dichotomies in mass media (i.e., temptress vs damsel; virgin vs slut). Do these roles perpetuate or debunk stereotypes? How does power, control and violence come into play with these gender roles? What is a healthy sexual space for women? What can positive female roles look like in media? Join us for a fun QT Film night special and short film screening “The Driver” By Matthew Baren! Feb 5th Sunday 5:30PM at Roxie.MORE…

The Shelter
Basement of 5 Yongfu Lu, near Fuxing Xi Lu

We carve our niche between a rock and a hard place, squeeze sequinned down supermarket aisles and cruise on public transport. This special edition of CINEMQ celebrates queered spaces in every form. From clubs to cruising grounds, collectives to communities…sites cut with glitter, with tears, with blood. In the absence of a home, we take shelter where we can.MORE…    



“Coming out” remains one of the biggest challenges among the LGBTQ community. Closet doors were opened and closed in schools, workplaces, within families and the society. Family members are the closest to us, many children are insecure and lost when dealing with relationship with their love ones. We hear of loving, helpless, exciting and broken-hearted stories, they are presented in films that touches many of us.

On 19-Nov 3PM, ShanghaiPRIDE with The Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Shanghai and PFLAG China will co-host “Dear Mom & Dad”, a special film screening of short films from The Netherlands and China about coming out.MORE…

Queer Talks – Community vs. Individuality


Sunday SEP 29


LOCATION: Cambio Coffee, 280 Aomen Road, near Changhua Road

LGBTQ+ people over the world live two very distinct realities: as members of groups with similar goals and desires, and as individuals facing their own needs and dreams. How do you identify being part of a community, and do you find yourself in agreement or at odds with that community? For our first Queer Talk of the season we wish to explore the relationships between queer individuals and the communities they comprise. MORE…

Red Ribbon Gala Dinner Returns Dec 1st, 2016

1st Flyer 30Aug2016

HIV/AIDS has become the second highest leading cause of death among adolescents globally. In China, according to China Center for Disease Control and Prevention, there are more than 570,000 people living with HIV/AIDS as at October 2015. Of that number, 9,152 are youths aged between 15 and 24. From 2008 to 2014, the number of youths infected by HIV/AIDS has increased by five times.

The rising trend of HIV/AIDS infections among younger age groups coupled with lack of access to proper information adds to the challenge in HIV/AIDS prevention. There is an urgent need to not only raise awareness on prevention of HIV/AIDS among the younger generation, but also to inform them on what to do, how to get treatment, and where to receive counseling should they be infected.
