PRIDE Lives On: Determination & Resilience in Queer China

June 21, 2022 | Online

The political landscape is changing quickly in China, and so is local LGBTQ activism. How does the Chinese queer movement respond to the escalating restrictions on civil society? What topics do they most concern themselves with? And what are some of the issues they are now working on as they forge new paths forward despite shrinking opportunities for visible, high profile activity? We talk to LGBTQ researchers, columnists and organizers to understand the state of the queer & allies community in 2022.
