ShanghaiPRIDE 2017

15 June - 18 June


Pride5 was amazing!! We’d like to thank all our sponsors, individual donors, volunteers, and YOU for making it happen. For the past six months, we’ve busted our behinds for this and we can finally say all the blood, sweat, and tears were worth it. The week-long festival were participated by more than 3000 guests, our highest turn out to-date. The film festival, theater performances and panel discussions each had a full-house crowd. The parties…well…I’m sure you know!

See you at ShanghaiPRIDE 2014!
