Hong Kong Pride Parade in FringeBacker

2015.10.20

Do you want Hong Kong to become an inclusive and fair place? This year, Hong Kong Pride Parade will work with FringeBacker for the first time and we hope to receive your support through donations for this large event to fight for equal rights in Hong Kong.

What is FringeBacker?

FringeBacker is a crowdfunding platform that facilitates creative arts, innovative industries and charitable organisations to exponentially raise more money. FringeBacker is a suitable platform for the Kong Pride Parade to raise the voice of equality and to awaken the society to stand up for gay rights in Hong Kong.

Why should we support the Pride Parade?

Hong Kong Pride Parade is a non-profit organization, and requires stable funding to organize the annual parade. Sources of expenditure include designing promotional products, staging, audio-visual equipment, venue set-up, and logistics. The greater the scale of the parade, the greater the expenditure required for organizing the event.

Funding has always been a major challenge to us as the Parade Organizing Committee has to pay the majority of expenditures in advance before the event. The lack of funding in 2010 resulted in an inability to host the Pride Parade that year. Till this day, we have never received any support from the Hong Kong Government, monetary or otherwise, and the operational fees has been painstakingly gathered from the diligent efforts of volunteers in selling promotional products, and kind donations from other LGBT-friendly allies.

We strive to diversify our sources of funding, but the controversy surrounding sexual minorities is an obstruction in getting sponsorship. There have been accounts of ceasing sponsorship during negotiations because of the stance that the Pride Parade takes. Under the efforts of the organizing committee, we are only able to obtain support from a handful of sponsors to smoothen the organization of the Parade.
