Shanghai, – This June, the ShanghaiPRIDE Theatre Festival (ShPTF) is ready to roll out an outstanding collection of theatre pieces for ShanghaiPRIDE that aims to broaden the art’s representation of LGBT lives and challenge, explore, and embrace its LGBT characters. Established as an alternate artistic experience to Pride’s many parties, the Theatre Festival gives theatre-goers a glimpse into what queer art can look like in China, and engages both local Chinese and English-speaking theatre companies. Shows start from the beginning of June with pre-Pride acts and then run on after Pride week, sizzling with dance, music, song, and drama through a diverse range of acts with some of the best performers in Shanghai.
ShanghaiPRIDE Rainbow Bike Ride registration starts now!
This is a brand-new night-time event for Pride7. Six teams, each representing a different color of the rainbow flag, will ride along six different routes to join together at Brownstone, Yongjia Court, where an after-ride party will be held. Riding time varies from 30 minutes to 1 hour for each route. We will equip all your bikes with lights of different colors. The moment when the “six-color rainbow” is united will be recorded by camera.
China’s longest-running reoccurring LGBTQ event ShanghaiPRIDE will kick off on the Saturday morning of June 13th 2015. For the third consecutive year, the week-long festival will be opened by a 6km city run passing through Shanghai’s various iconic sights, after which the crowd will be invited to celebrate diversity with a lunchtime BBQ at The Langham, Shanghai, Xintiandi, relaxing 5th level terrace lounge, XTD elevated. The venue’s encompassing view on the city’s popular Xintiandi district will be accompanied by a number of colorful performances.
Summer is coming, and as the heat picks up, clothes start falling off. On a Hawaiian beach, it’s ok to be half-dressed, so ShanghaiPRIDE is hosting its first Hawaiian-themed Summer Pub crawl on 23 May. We will take you to five bars, surround you with hot people, fill you with alcohol, and then leave you to dance. Could you ask for more on a Saturday night? Start working on those abs now because the dress code is beach wear. All you beaches better be there!
Come Zumba with us for a very special fitness dance party where your ticket proceeds will be donated to charity. Our recipient, Chengdu Tongle Health Counseling Service Center (Chengdu Tongle for short), established in 2002, is a non-profit organization initiated and independently managed by gay men, struggling against health crises like HIV/AIDS, developing gay culture and promoting gay rights. Whether it’s your first time to Zumba or you’re an aficionado, step to the beat with the best Zumba instructors Shanghai has to offer. Join us on Saturday 30May!
