ShanghaiPRIDE 2018

QT Share: Queer & Religion


Concepts of the inner Queer and religious institutions have flourished alongside each other for centuries. Are our Queer identities affected by religious and social elements? On the other hand, has the persistence of Queer society affected the religious traditions it’s surrounded by? Just as religion affects society and society affects religion, we are unable to talk about Queer identities and gender awareness without talking about religion. This week at Queer Talks Share, we open the conversation on the relationship between religion, social constructs, gender roles and identity. There will be a few special guests sharing their experiences on Queer and Religion. See you this Sunday, 29th of October, 5:30PM Happy Hour@Roxie!

ShanghaiPRIDE 2017 Recap Video

At this year’s ShanghaiPRIDE-Pride9, we had the help of 180 volunteers who took 7 months to organize 34 events held in a total of 19 days spanning 4 months including the festival proper, which attracted more than 6000 participants.

As this is the 9th year of ShanghaiPRIDE, we made some changes and tried something new to continuously improve the festival.

Every year is a test of perseverance and learning experience for the Pride team. Every success of Pride9 is attributed to the efforts of the volunteers and the support of sponsors, partners, and participants.
This is the end of Pride9 which is also the beginning of the next milestone, Pride10. In conjunction with the 10th year of ShanghaiPRIDE, we will be part of the 2018 CnPRIDE. Stay tuned and see you next year!MORE…
