From 17 to 18 August 2013, the second China Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender (LGBT) Community Leader Conference successfully took place in Beijing. Emphasizing the participation of communities whose voice remains largely underrepresented in China’s LGBT movement, representatives of the lesbian, gay & straight community shared the stage with (among others) leaders of organizations focusing on wives of gay men, bisexuality, transgender issues, disabled LGBT, parents of LGBT, SM, sex workers and HIV/AIDS issues. Both developed and underdeveloped regions were represented, with leaders from far-away regions such as Tibet and Xinjiang also joining in the debates. The Conference also saw the participation of a small delegation of activists based outside of Mainland China, including Hong Kong, Taiwan, UK, and US-based representatives.
In total, more than 140 LGBT activists, representing 70 organizations and over 28 different regions in China actively participated in the conference.
