Increasing Transgender Visbility in China

The Netherlands Embassy in Beijing, Queer Comrades, the Aibai Culture & Education Center, the Beijing Gender Health Education Institute and Common Language are holding an event in connection with the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHO) on Friday 17 May, 14.00 – 17.00 pm.

IDAHO raises awareness of discrimination and challenges faced by Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered (LGBT) people. Our theme this year is “lgbT Increasing Transgender Visibility in China ”. Chinese society is currently still largely unaware of the plight of transgendered people in China, who face stigma and discrimination on a daily basis. With the event, we focus on bringing attention to transgender communities in China and increasing public understanding of transgender issues. We specifically reach out to representatives of the media, educational professionals and psychological counselors, as they fulfill important firstline roles in the spreading of information and the providing of help regarding transgender issues.

The event is hosted by and will take place at the Netherlands Embassy in Beijing. It will consist of the premiere of the documentary “Brothers” produced by the LGBT organization Queer Comrades (you can watch the trailer here), a panel discussion including Yaoyao (director of thedocumentary), Tony (transgender man, documentary main character), Joanne Leung (founder Transgender Resource Center Hong Kong), Zhen Hongli (psychologist Global Care Women & Children’s Hospital Beijing), and Guo Yanan (Aibai Transgender Program Assistant). This will be followed by an informal networking event where you are encouraged to get to know the Beijing LGBT organizations and their work on transgender issues. 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 IDAHO2013@163.COM.  We will give priority seating to members of the media, educational professionals and psychological counselors, so please specify your affiliation in this regard.

Address: Netherlands Embassy in Beijing, Liangmahe South Road #4, Chaoyang, Beijing
