Hong Kong Pride Parade 2015

by Hong Kong Pride Parade Vetted since 2015

Summary

The Hong Kong Pride Parade promotes equal rights for and anti-discrimination against the LGBT community. By showing the different faces of our community, it facilitates respect for diversity in the society. We host the annual parade in the busiest streets of Hong Kong, along with mass assemblies at both the commencement and conclusion venues of the parade. This parade is the largest event in Hong Kong advocating for equal rights for the LGBT community.

Challenge

Currently, Hong Kong has no legal protection against discrimination on grounds of sexual orientation. As a result, the LGBT community faces discrimination in housing, employment, education and immigration etc.

Solution

Hong Kong Pride Parade needs support to convey the message of LGBT equality to a wider audience in Hong Kong. With 8,900 participants in Hong Kong Pride Parade 2014, the number of participants has been on a continual raise. To accommodate for a greater crowd of supporters and to convey the voice of the LGBT community to the Hong Kong society, the Hong Kong Pride Parade is in need of support.

Long-Term Impact

A parade with a great diversity of people parading down the street is the best public education for fostering an inclusive society, in which LGBT people can be treated equally. Our goal is to achieve a just and safe environment for LGBT people in Hong Kong.
