Hong Kong Pride, Nov 1

'Be proud, be yourself' is the theme for Hong Kong’s second gay pride parade to be held Nov 1 this year.


“’Be Proud’ is an attitude. It represents self-confidence, courage, honour, and joy. It means striding with assurance, with energy and full gear! ‘Be yourself’ is a living direction, and cannot be isolated by age, race, colour, language, gender and sexual orientation,” organisers explain on the parade's website.

Organisers Women Coalition of HKSAR, Rainbow of Hong Kong, Midnight Blue, Nutong Xueshe, Gay Harmony say they expect to attract a greater turnout than last year’s 1,000 participants.

Although the parade is only the territory’s second, the same organisers and the LGBT community in Hong Kong have commemorated International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHO) with a parade for three consecutive years since 2005.

The rally and parade will begin at 2:30pm at Southern Playground, Wan Chai and will proceed along Hennessy Road (Westbound) to Chater Garden, Central where a street party will be held. Individuals or groups interested to perform at the party can contact join@hkpride.net.

HK pride parade, here I come! I'm marching with some friends this year and this will be my very first pride march in life. If you are Malaysian and planning to march, may be we can join up and boost the Malaysian contingent. I'm so looking forward to it.
