Homosexuality is still a sensitive topic in China, where traditional family values are strongly ingrained. In 2015, China ranked 91st globally for gender equality. According to a study under the UN Development Program, only 5% of China’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) population is open about their sexual or gender identity at school or work, with 17% open to their families. This is just one statistic among many.
Join us on September 10th to understand more about what is being done in Beijing and across China to address some the issues, stigmas, perceptions and biases that the society and people we care about are going through.
