Looking back, 2015 was a rollercoaster ride for China’s LGBT movement. On one hand, members of the community won lawsuits against psychological clinics, the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT), the Department of Education, and the Department of Civil Affairs; and Taobao joined with LGBT organizations to fund the marriages of seven couples in California. On the other, NGOs were subjected to tougher crackdowns, and the arrest of five female activists caused a chilling effect across the LGBT community. At this event, several important members from the LGBT movement will share their reflections and visions of both past and future. (Of note: 2016 is an important anniversary as it marks 15 years since the Chinese Psychiatric Association declassified homosexuality as a mental illness.) This event will be in Chinese with English interpretation. 

2015年是中国同志(LGBT)运动转折的一年,与权益相关的官司接连不断:同志们告赢了心理诊所、广电总局,而教育部、民政局也已经或者将要被送上被告席。淘宝网联合数家同志机构送七对同志伴侣赴加州结婚,随后也迎来了全美同性婚姻合法的消息…然而于此同时,NGO却面临着更为严厉的审查,妇女节前夕五位被抓的女权主义者不少也都是同志权益的参与者,至今让大家心有余悸。2016年是中国同志去病理化的十五周年,未来还是未知,同志仍需努力。想要知新,必须要温故,我们请来2015年几位事件当事人和大家一起分享讨论。
