Shanghai Pride

Began in 2009 and is an annual festival that celebrates diversity.

Organized entirely by volunteers with the support of media, businesses, individuals, and foreign consulates.

Aim to raise awareness and visibility, and to promote self-acceptance and acceptance for the LGBTQ community through sports, cultural, and social activities.

Encourage the community and partners to support LGBTQ-related projects and initiatives.

Grown from eight organizers and a modest gathering of 3,000 attendees in 2009, to 30 organizers and 6,500 attendees in 2017 with over 30 different sports, social, and cultural events.

In 2014, the ShanghaiPRIDE team was awarded “Shanghai Hero” by Time Out Shanghai magazine.
