Meet Evie Wu, one of the organizers of Shanghai Pride.

On June 28th, 1969 the Stonewall Riots kicked off a larger gay rights movement in the USA.

In 1970, the first gay pride marches took place in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago – today pride parades are taking place all around the world.

In 2018, I wanted to know who the people organizing today’s pride parades are, what the marches mean to them, and met wonderfully powerful, loving and kind people from places, which might not be the first ones that come to mind, when we think of queer love.

See all Faces of Pride.

Are you ready to start your self-actualization journey?


What’s your name and age? Hi! This is Evie Wu. I’m 30.

Since when have you been involved with Shanghai Pride, and what do you do? I joined Shanghai Pride at the end of 2012 and helped with translation and theatres the following year. I organized Shanghai Pride Theatre Festival from 2014-2015, and work on Brand Management & Communication since 2016.

Why do you think Prides are important? First of all, Prides encourage individuals to be themselves through educational, social, sport and art activities.
Then Prides are festivals which can make the voice louder and help to create awareness and visibility. Also it’s a great platform for partners and communities to get together and to support those who support the community.

What is one (or two) remarkable thing(s) that has/have happened at Shanghai Pride?
Shanghai Pride is entirely organized by volunteers with the support from media, consulates, sponsors and individuals. This year we’ve got over 300 volunteers for 10 days of events.

At the same time, we can see that many local companies are involved to create a diverse workplace or an LGBTQ-friendly venue. This year we work with Out&Equal from the USA to organize China Roundtable which brought over 50 participants together to talk about how to start with a Diversity & Inclusive program in corporations. We talked about how it’s important for colleagues to be allies, to support the community, and how to improve the LGBTQ workplace and attract more talents for the corporation.

This year is the 10th year of pride in Shanghai and we initiate CnPRIDE at this moment with grassroots organizations around Mainland China, that have developed for years and that have the capability to organize a festival or an event for their local community. From May to July, the whole community around the mainland can celebrate TOGETHER!

What do you do when you’re not organizing Shanghai Pride? We all have our full-time job. Besides, we start organizing Shanghai Pride at least 8 months earlier, which means most of the time we are with pride. Currently, we’ve got over 300 volunteers, so it’s a big community, actually. The rest of the time, when we meet, we will still discuss how we can improve our management, event experience, partner relationship to make much influence in Shanghai and make it more diverse. Shanghai Pride has become a super important thing in my life.

What’s one of your favourite pastimes? Reading & travelling.

Is there something you would like to say to the rest of the LGBT+ community? We are not alone, be brave to be yourself!

How Can We Be Soft?

How Can We Be Soft?

Dear Future Self, I just listened to this wonderful compilation, what a perfect way to start the day! "Stretch your mind far enough to soften your heart - stay grounded on both sides. This is tenacious tenderness and tender tenacity." Quote from the video. Tenderness,...

Do You Believe in God?

Do You Believe in God?

I have to admit that I have my difficulties.

I grew up believing in God. Not that long ago, I opened my very first diary to a random page and read about how grateful I was, that I always had God to talk to.

Then my education made me believe that there was no God. I came to the conclusion that God, or any kind of belief, was used to explain things we couldn’t explain ourselves yet.

How can you benefit from coaching? Life is precious, and it's a limited period of time we have on this earth, in this form. We can use this time to grow, experience, love, serve and learn.

Each of us gets to choose in every moment how their life is going to continue, but often we don't make the choices we want, but the ones we think are expected from us. And that leads to chaos, unhappiness and confusion because we're not aligned with our inner knowing.

Once we realize that we have the power to choose and change our circumstances, life enters into a more natural flow.

But to get there, we have some unlearning to do. We need to uncover the subconscious believes that keep us stuck, we need to leave our comfort zones and stretch ourselves, and we have to form new habits that serve us better. And that's what I'm here for, I will help you to become joyfully interdependent.

If you would like to work with me as a coach, I can guide you to find new options that are more aligned with your inner knowing, and to learn to trust your inner voice, to clear blockages that have been holding you back and to open up space for what really matters in your life. The best way to work with me this year is by joining the I AM CREATOR School as a VIP member with individual coaching.

On this journey you can find clarity, confidence, love, freedom, connection and so much more.

Ask yourself:

Am I ready to explore what else is possible for me? Am I curious to learn more about myself and my powers?
