2012上海骄傲节今夏揭幕
?再次见证中国男、女同性恋及双性恋和跨性别(LGBT)人群的欢庆盛典

中国大陆最具规模的面向LGBT人群(包括女同志、男同志、双性恋和跨性别者)的庆典活动上海骄傲节即将于6月15日至23日再次亮相上海。该活动由上海LGBT志愿者团体携手其他中国LGBT人群相关志愿者组织发起,迄今已连续举办三届。为期一周的骄傲节将包括派对、文娱表演、座谈交流等丰富多彩、趣味横生的活动形式,由此倡导社会各界对于LGBT人群的理解与宽容。本年度活动的主题是我有话对你说。

本年度骄傲节将由积累人气的开幕派对揭幕,该派对有望吸引500多位活动的忠实拥趸参与。之后一周的活动将包括电影放映、专题座谈、艺术展览等不同形式,其中不乏LGBT人群独特的创意及趣味元素。骄傲节将在中国传统节日端午当天由家庭欢聚日活动落幕,由一系列文娱表演、趣味活动及时尚的落幕派对组成的家庭欢聚日将把整个骄傲节活动引向欢乐的高潮。

The 4th annual ShanghaiPRIDE Week, China's biggest LGBT event of the year, will take place from June 15 to 23. The week of art, sport, performances and social events is spearheaded by the ShanghaiLGBT group in partnership with other Chinese LGBT groups. ShanghaiPRIDE aims to be as inclusive and as enjoyable as possible while pushing its key message of acceptance and tolerance to the wider community. This year's slogan is, "Don't Hide, Don't Change, Be Proud."

"We're really excited about this year's Pride," says co-founder and organiser Dylan Chen. "It's the perfect opportunity to bring the LGBT community from across China and the world together in a fun and relaxed way. And it serves the important purpose of letting gay and lesbian people know that they're not alone. Attitudes toward gays and lesbians are quickly changing in China among the young, urban classes but there's still a lot of work to do in convincing older generations and the more traditional among us that being gay is ok."

The week's festivities officially kick off with the ever-popular Pink Picnic, a free event in Zhongshan Park on June 16. The following seven days will be packed with other outdoor events, film screenings, art and drama, and much more. These will be interspersed by nights out as fun and fabulous as only LGBTs know how to throw. Things will draw to a close with the Family Day BBQ party on June 23 at Cotton's 2. This fun-filled day will include lots of live music and dance performances and activities. It wll wrap up in style with a June 23 dance party at Mi Tierra.
