Theme announced! Hong Kong Pride 2021

We proudly present the theme and key visual of Hong Kong Pride 2021!

The Pride Parade will appear in a brand-new mode this year. Despite changes in the format, your support remains an essential part of our event!

Theme: Stay in Love

“Stay in Love” is the essence of our promise to “not be apart”.

The word “Apart” does not go alone without the emotion of pain. This pain is not uncommon to the LGBTQ+ community, as we inevitably face countless separations because of our identity. It may come as a form of parental opposition that separates us from our partners, or it could be the preservation of our true self that unfortunately led to the breakdown of our family relationships. Sometimes these separations are results of the discriminative and unjust societal system, which has put us under senseless and meaningless torment.

“Stay in Love” also carries the hope to be together. Leave or stay is perhaps an unavoidable question that we all have to go through these days. We might all be standing at the crossroads of the future, but do always remember we can choose to embrace the present, and try not to be apart. Even though some separations have unfortunately become unchangeable facts, we can still hold the hope of getting together in the future. Where there is love, there is hope for reunions. May every one of us who hold onto love, take this love as a promise to each other, and look towards a future in which we can be together.

In 2021, in the pursuit of a more diverse and LGBTQ+ friendly Hong Kong, we may still need to search for more means to get together. Even though the future is unforeseeable, let us all make this promise that we would seize every opportunity meeting with each other in the future, so that we won’t be apart.

The theme for Hong Kong Pride Parade this year is “Stay in love”. May we never truly be apart, let’s meet in love and look towards seeing a bright future together.

Hong Kong Pride 2021 Is in Progress

Hong Kong Pride 2021 is in progress.

This year is our second Pride event in the pandemic. We'll try very hard to make it happen. Although Hong Kong Pride event may be held in a different format due to the pandemic and new situation in the world, we are committed to voice out and  fight for LGBT+ equality. 

To further strengthen the bonds within the community, a new platform called Community Development Network (CDN) was curated in late 2020. The network shall focus in building a sustainable platform in uniting all LGBTQI+ friendly individuals, organizations and businesses. Participating partners are eligible in receiving shared resources. The network sets to facilitate the interactions among partners, curate potential collaborations and hence expand the local LGBTQI+ friendly community. Please contact us at cdn@hkpride.net if you are interested.

Our team will keep you posted for updates of HK Pride 2021 event.

The world may be different but our heart to fight for LGBT+ rights remains!

Stay safe, stay healthy!

Hong Kong Pride Parade 2020 was great

 

Thanks for supporting! Hope that HK can get out from the shadows, and fly proudly in the colours of freedom and equality ‍

Although Hong Kong Pride Parade was unable to take place under the sunlight to spread the vision of equality and inclusiveness, an online gathering was made possible on November 14 under the strong support and persistence from all our allies. And the livestream of the event was broadcasted in hopes of cheering up and encouraging those who fight for freedom and equality.


We give our thanks to everyone who has supported Pride Parade, including all of you who took part with online Hong Kong Pride Parade 2020, our rainbow ambassadors Siufay and Figo, and District Councillors who took their time off to physically support us.


Due to the spatial constrains of our location this year, Hong Kong Pride Parade could only invite some of the LGBT-friendly District Councillors to take part in this year’s event. Nonetheless, every single District Councillors has showcased their knowledge and unconditional care towards LGBT+. In the coming year, we hope that under the leadership of the district councillors, along with our combined efforts in support of equality and diversity, rainbow could be brought into communities, and Hong Kong could finally be LGBT+ friendly.


We once again express our thanks to each and everyone of you, and sincerely hopes that Hong Kong can emerge from the darkness of 2020, and fly proudly in the colours of freedom and equality.
May we return to the streets in the years to come, and stride proudly under the dazzling rays of the sun.
