Consultation Center of AIDS Aid and Health Service

Beijing, China
Joined June 2016
Presence in: China
Focus: Access to Information, Gender-based violence, Health

I am working for a non-government civil society organization in China. Our working focuses are advocating equal human rights of sexual minorities, say gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people, as well as the rights of sex workers. On the one hand we document human rights violation cases of MSM and transgender sex workers with photography and documentaries. On the other hand, we cooperate with public interest lawyers to sue the police and other local authorities who violence these vulnerable group. We also advocate for positive policy changes. For example the rule of law on people living with HIV is very bad which leads to the severe discrimination toward people living with HIV, and hundreds of people died because of this. Lastly, we provide technical support and capacity building training to other HIV, LGBT and sex worker related civil societies organizations in China for more than 6 years.

Interests: Access to Information, Gender-based violence, Health
I am a human rights defender working mainly in China for LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender), people living with HIV and sex workers. I am the director of two documentaries of transgender sex workers, which indicate the human rights violation cases of transgender women in northeast China. I also composed and translated the first human rights training textbook in China, which is going to be published soon this year for other civil society organizations to utilize in their future work. Moreover, I have been working as the training facilitator for a series of human rights-based participatory training in China, and helped hundreds of young LGBT people, people living with HIV and sex worker to achieve a better self-affirming and self-confidence. Also, in 2012 I joined in a Asia-Pacific youth network named Youth Voices Count, and my working focus has extended to the whole Asia and Pacific region since then on young LGBT people.
