The wait is over, the time to take action has come – for if not now, when? And the wait for this year’s ShanghaiPRIDE Theatre Festival is almost over. Last year ShanghaiPRIDE was proud to present a number of exceptional performances concerning issues dear to the LGBTQ community in both Chinese and English. This year, under the steady hand of Lilian Shen, we have a new host of programs ready to raise awareness, smiles and even a few tears to your eyes.

Queer Talks Shades II: Colorism
How do you define beauty? Often, our beauty standards are shaped by social influences and history we are exposed to from a young age. Media and advertisements consistently bombard us with whitening products, telling us: “the whiter the better. And then there’s the moment when tanning products were not widely received by Chinese netizens. Should a boy decide to use cosmetics? If he does,is discrimination a guarantee? “BEAUTY” intersects skin tone, gender, class…everything that we assume is equivalent to aesthetic. Join us on April 16th, to talk about colorism and mainstream society’s (unattainable) standards of beauty in the queer community.
Date: Sunday April 16th
Venue: Roxie, 359 Kangding Rd 2F near North Shanxi Rd
Rainbow Bike Ride
The Time Is Now to ride for the community!
ShanghaiPRIDE would like to announce that registration for the Rainbow Bike Ride is now open!
To commemorate International Day Against Homophobia & Transphobia (IDAHOT), and as a pre-Pride event, this year’s Rainbow Bike Ride will be held on Saturday morning, 20-May. Six teams of cyclists will represent the six colours of the Rainbow Flag, starting out from every corner of Shanghai to meet at Xuhui Binjiang Green Space for a picnic. Riding time varies from 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on the route. We will equip each team of cyclists with rainbow elements and be there to record the moment all six teams get together to form the Six Coloured Rainbow.
