When was the first time you discover something about sexuality?
Do you find it difficult to have conversations about sex and sexuality?
How do sexual identities connect with Chinese identities?

Sexuality can be a difficult topic within our Chinese community. Through discussion, interactive games, and presentation, we invite Chinese-identified parents, adults, and youth to share their personal journey on the issue of Chinese identity and sexuality. We hope you can join us with your sharing and storytelling, as we work together to better understand the topic of sexuality.

This event is organized by Chinese Canadian National Council Toronto Chapter. Discussion will be held in Mandarin mainly with partial translation provided.
*The venue is accessible.

Pink Dot T.O. 2015: Chinatown Pride March

By |May 16th, 2015|Event|0 Comments

Supporting the freedom to love!

Date/Time: Saturday, May 16, 2015 at 12:00PM
Location: Market 707 (707 Dundas Street at Bathurst)
Wear: PINK


Pinkdot is a non-profit movement originating in Singapore by a group of individuals who care deeply and support the belief that everyone deserves the freedom to love. While we are fortunate to have marriage equality in Toronto, LGBT Asians in Toronto still face challenges from their families, friends, and the greater Asian community. With little conversation about being LGBT and Asian, this under represented group still struggles with coming out to their family and friends. We are gathering in Chinatown to show there is support and love in our community for LGBT Asians who are still trying to find a place where they feel comfortable to be themselves. It is an event for everyone; straight, gay, and allies, who support the belief that everyone deserves the freedom to love.

This year on Saturday, May 16, Asian Community AIDS Services and the Chinese Canadian National Council Toronto Chapter are pleased to present PinkDot Toronto. It will be hosted at the Scadding Court Community Centre, including a march through Chinatown.

Show your support for queer Asians by wearing pink and march down Chinatown during Asian Heritage Month and International Day Against Homophobia/Transphobia!

Friends, family and allies are welcome.
