Many in 🇨🇳China’s gay community are strangers to Western #LGBT cultures, and Westerners are unfamiliar with their Chinese counterparts’ lifestyles

Using Western metrics like #pride month & #rainbowcapitalism 🏳️‍🌈 to weigh their joy is intellectually flawed…

It's time to speak up for ourselves & each other.
If you’ve been afraid to voice your doubts or concerns about what’s been happening within our community in recent years, Pride is the time to be brave & start speaking up, just as previous generations of LGB people did to create
