short background of migrants pride 移工同志驕傲遊行的小背景
we are more than proud to be with you on our third year of migrants’ pride! yes, it’s been three years now since we started to come together as an lgbt community here in hong kong! migrants’ pride parade launched its first pride parade in november 2015 to promote the rights and welfare of lgbt migrants in the community, a call to stop violence against women (as migrants are composed mainly of lesbians), equality and fight against homophobia and discrimination.
this year’s theme is “pride with integrity, pride of humanity”. we are divested of our integrity not only as migrants, but, even more as lesbian migrants. we are victims of sexual abuses, exploitation and discrimination existing on our domestic environment compounded with racism. we are denied of our humanity on deprivation of our democratic rights and be recognized as workers.
migrants pride march aims to promote not only our issues against slavery and discrimination but also to intensify our call on issues on wage increase, regulation of working hours, and health and safety programs for domestic workers.
on november 26, 2017 there will be a parade of the migrants’ pride from 1 to 2 pm. route of the parade will be from edinburgh place around major points of the filipino community and it will end in chater road in front of alexandra house for the actual 2-3 hours program. the program will be packed of cultural presentations in the form of cheering dance from various lgbt, women and advocates’ groups, local groups and organizations, speeches and solidarity messages.
