GET CONNECTED!

 

The Netherlands Embassy in Beijing, Queer Comrades and the Beijing Gender Health Education Institute are holding an event in connection with the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT) on Saturday 17 May, 15:00 – 18:00 pm.

IDAHOT raises awareness of discrimination and challenges faced by Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered (LGBT) people. Our theme this year is “Get Connected!”.

The internet, which came to China 20 years ago, opened up a new chapter for the Chinese LGBT movement. It unlocked the gates of communication, and now there are thousands of ways to find love, sex and friendship on the web. But do we really know each other? Can we only be LGBT online? Is our offline reality keeping pace with our online fantasies?

Today, we invite you to log off. Join us in a reflection on our online behavior, get to know the people behind the profile pics, and get inspired to take part in changing LGBT realities both on- and offline!

The event is hosted by and will take place at the Netherlands Embassy in Beijing. It will consist of a screening of the documentary “Surfing for Love” produced by the LGBT organization Queer Comrades, a panel discussion including Geng Le (founder of danlan.org and CEO of the mobile dating app Blued), Yuan Yuan (queer artist, documentary filmmaker, and founder of an online lesbian dating group), and Xiao A (founder of lesbian dating app Lesdo).  This will be followed by an informal networking event where you are encouraged to get to know the Beijing LGBT organizations and their work.  The documentary will be provided with Chinese – English subtitles, the panel discussion will take place in the Chinese language without translation.

As seating is limited, please confirm your attendance by writing an email to Jackie.bghei@gmail.com. We look forward to meeting you and celebrating with you in a safe and friendly environment.

Kind regards,

Queer Comrades, Beijing Gender Health Education Institute and The Netherlands Embassy in Beijing.
