The Hong Kong Pride Parade Organizing Committee Members
Gay Harmony was established on 14 February 2009. As gay men, we see the needs of the gay community but lacks resource for the LGBT community in HK, such as sex education for LGBT, sexual identification counseling and LGBT rights, etc. For gay community, these resources are still difficult to reach. Therefore, we would like to set up ‘Gay Harmony’ to provide services to the gay community.
Women Coalition of HKSARhttp://wchk.org/
Established on 1st July 2003, The Women Coalition of HKSAR (WCHK) is a non-profit and non-governmental organization based in Hong Kong. WCHK aims to defend the human rights of sexual minorities and eliminate discrimination in terms of civil rights, political, economical, social and cultural oppression based on one’s sexual orientation and/or gender identity. We contribute our parts in the local female LBTQ community and perform our mission through advocacy, documentation, public education, oral history and cultural development. We define female gender identity as one’s self-perceived gender instead of one’s biological sex.

The Association for Transgender Rights was established on the 31st of March (International Transgender Day of Visibility) to serve the transgender community and fight for transgender rights. The association’s work involves receiving complaints from transgender individuals who have been treated unfairly, assisting transgender individuals in escaping their predicaments and promoting tolerance for diversity in the society. Apart from supporting transgendered individuals in these different ways, the Association for Transgender Rights also works to promote gender education on equal opportunity, to fight for rights on gender diversity, to build transgender-friendly spaces, and to promote a culture that respects gender diversity.
