During ShanghaiPRIDE week, we will host a sharing session with our community. It is a big step. Our goal is for you to leave more informed about individuals, organizations and groups who are putting much effort against a variety of issues. Some of them are insufficient funding for HIV/AIDS, ideological restrictions on prevention, and persistent stigmas and discrimination. While attending this panel discussion, you will learn how local and global organizations are combating the issues, fearlessly, with the wisdom needed to fight the epidemic and how to provide for those who are living with the virus. “Information can bring choices and choices bring power – educate yourself about your options and choices. Never remain in the dark of ignorance”.

Sponsored by the Dutch Consulate

This exhibition showcases Love & Health, and how they intertwine. No matter what your orientation is, love and health should not be taken for granted.

This show features three groups of artists who express their own interpretations of love, emotions, and the importance of health for each of them. Love comes in every form and so does art. This exhibition will show contrasting artistic techniques from Chinese Yunnan style art, oil painting to handicraft. These artists hope to share their ideas and spread awareness to the world through their art.

ShanghaiPRIDE2014 IDENTITY series Review

logo_identify_theatre_series

This year ShanghaiPRIDE theater focuses on the topic of IDENTITY. Identity is such a basic and ubiquitous human concept that we often take it for granted. When the truth you feel about your personal identity matches the truth other people assume about you, it creates harmony in life that most of us fail to appreciate. However, when you hide from your lover your birth gender, when your partner suspects you are attracted to someone of the same or different sex, when you don’t like who you are, when you can’t answer for yourself the question “Who am I?” You must either live in perpetual turmoil or undertake the difficult quest of aligning your self-identity with your public identity. We explore three facets of this struggle through three plays in our IDENTITY series.

When a gay man suddenly loves a woman, when a wife discovers her husband is gay, when a person’s appearance is not true to who the person really is, then, who are they? And you… have you “identified” yourself yet?MORE…

poster_transgender_in_china

In Chinese society, transgender issues remain invisible even within the LGBT community. Very few organizations focus their efforts into contributing to the development of a more empowered transgender community. This year, ShanghaiPRIDE invites friends from UNDP, the media, the community, and supporters to share their work and experiences on this topic.
