On May 17, the International Day Against Homophobia & Transphobia (IDAHO), over a hundred LGBT people and allies from Beijing, Hong Kong, Guangdong, Chongqing, Hubei and Zhejiang  gathered at the scenic river belt near Hexi University to fight for their rights and against discrimination.  The event was held by the local LGBT rights organization “Hunan With Love”, and was named “2013 China Mainland (Changsha) Anti-Discrimination Summer Event”.

That night, event organizer Xiang Xiaohan and 3 others were taken away by the local Changsha police.   The next day, 3 of them were released,  but Xiang Xiaohan was administratively detained for 12 days.

While we need to think on how to do better next time, we also have to celebrate the courage of Xiaohan and his team and congratulate them on a very successful event.

    I personally had been exploring for techniques for my blog and uncovered your own blog,
    “Queer Comrades | Changsha LGBT Pride Takes Place, Organizer Detained”, do you care if perhaps I really make use of many of your concepts?

    Thanks ,Brigitte
