On 17 May 1990, the World Health Organization decided to remove homosexuality from its list of mental disorders.  Since then, 17 May has become the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHO), a worldwide day of action against homophobia and transphobia in all its different forms.

In its most extreme form, homophobia gives rise to violence, a world-wide problem recognized by the UN.  China has also seen its share of homophobic violence, yet it has gone largely underreported. A particularly urgent problem, reflecting the ubiquity of homophobic violence in society, consists of the mental and physical harassment or “bullying” of LGBT people in the educational system.

The documentary “Strong” raises awareness on homophobic violence in China.  With this film, Queer Comrades puts a human face on violence against LGBT people in China. Meet Zhang Lingxuan, a young man from Fujian: physically harassed in high school for being openly gay. he finds out how deep homophobia runs when he doesn’t get any support from the school authorities. Armed with an indestructible spirit, he courageously pursues his dreams and starts using his experience to raise LGBT awareness throughout China.  Complemented by testimonies of Chinese experts & activities, this documentary is a testimony to the importance of bringing violence against LGBT people to the forefront, and gives you some ideas on how you can make things better.

Get informed and take a stand against homophobia and transphobia!

    爱,是一种精神的享受,是一份精神的寄托与依赖,是告别孤单的开始,为什么我们永远不被接受?因为我是GAY,父母远离了我,朋友远离了我,抑郁的痛苦接踵而至,精神上的折磨无时无刻不存在着,自杀与自残的念头往往充斥着我们的心,很多时候,我一直在想一些问题:我真的是变态吗?为什么都要抛弃我?我到底怎么了?为什么我没有做过什么坏事而要受到上天这样不公的待遇?一切都没有答案,就像是一个谜。偶然间想起了张国荣(哥哥)遗书中的一句话:我一生没做过坏事,为什么要这样?我想正是因为我们没有做过什么坏事,才会这样吧!这就是现实,这就是社会?这就是人权?我们的基本权利哪去了?国家与社会的法律保护与道德尊重又在哪里?我们为什么不能去爱?不能去平平凡凡的爱一个我们所爱的人呢?好累…我的心好累,我想,有一天当自己承受不住的时候,也会踏上哥哥的后尘,因为只有这样才能从痛苦与压抑中解脱。这不是生命的结束,恰恰是一个新的开始!
