Viet Pride 2013 – Strive with Pride

02 – 04 Aug 2013

Goethe Institut and other places

Goethe-Institut Hanoi

56-58 Nguyen Thai Hoc

Ba Dinh Dist, Hanoi

Join us for Hanoi’s second annual Pride weekend, August 2-4, 2013.

Viet Pride 2013 aims to raise awareness, generate dialogue, and empower the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community. It will comprise film screenings, discussions with noteworthy LGBT individuals, and a bike rally to raise awareness and build solidarity. Viet Pride is also home to the Strive with Pride Scholarships, which work to empower LGBT youth.

Like Pride elsewhere in the world, Viet Pride joins the global call to end prejudice, discrimination, shame and invisibility on the grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity. It forges the truth that every human is born free and equal, and to love someone is never a criminal act, a religious sin, a medical illness, or a social evil.

The schedule is as follows:

Friday, August 2 (Goethe Institut):

– 17.45-20.00: Opening Ceremony and introduction of the Strive with Pride Scholarships, preliminary report on Say Yes to Employment Equality campaign

– 20.00-22.00: Film screening: “Aimée and Jaguar” (Germany)

– 9.30-11.30: Talkshow “What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Stronger”, a talkshow with Vietnamese LGBTs who went from victims of circumstance to role models who inspire

– 11.30-13.30: Film screening “The Truth about Jane” (USA)

– 13.30-15.30: Talkshow “The Art of Telling LGBT Stories” a talkshow with three young artists. Maika Elan, Nguyen Ngoc Thach, and Huynh Nguyen Dang Khoa have made remarkable contributions to telling the stories of LGBT people, through photography, literature and film.

– 15.30-17.30: Film screening: “Beautiful Boxer” (Thailand)

– 17.30-19.30: Workshop “Go Far, Go Together” – a forum for learning about LGBT-oriented grassroots groups
