The dates have been set; the venues have been arranged and it looks like it’s going to be a great party. Look out for venue details, exact times and locations to be released a day or two before each event, to prevent any… ahem… complications. Keep checking back for more information as it emerges, I’ll fill you in as soon as I learn anything new. The dates and events scheduled are as follows:
11am-2pm Pink Picnic at Zhongshan Park
Get there: From Zhongshan Park metro station on line 2, take exit 4 and then enter Gate 1 of the Park about 50 meters away on the left. The group will be seated on the big lawn (there is a map at the entrance), go straight, take the left path, walk two minutes and you should see a group of crazy pink people. Bring your food, your drinks, your games, your friends and your funny pink accessories!

Volunteers are still needed to make everything run smoothly. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how you can help. Buying Shanghai Pride stuff is also a great way to help out if you don’t have time to spare; friends from Shanghai LGTB have been offering t-shirts, pins, and other cool merch at Shanghai Studio most weekend evenings, every little bit helps especially in the last few weeks before we celebrate.

Why are we having pride in the autumn time again? Everyone knows that Pride is when the weather is best for people to be shirtless and wet. How are the twinks going to show off their bods? How are the drag queens going to be wearing almost nothing when it's too cold for them? MADNESS!!!!
