TCJM 同志社區聯席會議

Welcome to the Pink Alliance

Pink Alliance LogoThe Pink Alliance (aka Tongzhi Community Joint Meeting or TCJM) aims to link tongzhi organizations operating in Hong Kong, so as to assist them in their work and to provide a network for information in both Chinese and English within the tongzhi community. We also research and campaign on issues of key importance. Tongzhi (同志), a Chinese phrase, is often translated as ‘comrade’, which refers to people of different sexual orientations and gender identities in the Chinese-speaking world. Whether through advocacy work or cultural activities, we aim to advance social recognition of tongzhi as valuable members of society. In Hong Kong, we are pleased to be able to play a part, on various fronts, in the critical moment in the fight for legal protection against LGBT discrimination. We hope you find useful information of our engagements in this newly enhanced website, and lend your support to our work in whatever way you can.
