The Norwegian Embassy in Beijing is media sponsor of the Beijing LGBT Centers masquerade-themed cocktail gala 11 May.

Following this year’s International Day Against Homophobia & Transphobia theme of “fighting anonymous web homophobia,” the Beijing LGBT is hosting a masquerade-themed cocktail gala, featuring great drinks, canapés and an enticing list of items for a silent auction and lucky draw raffle.

All proceeds from A Rainbow Affair will support the Beijing LGBT Center’s ongoing projects to end discrimination and misinformation about LGBT mental health, and provide counseling to those most in need.

A guest speaker from the United States Embassy will give remarks about the importance of International Day Against Homophobia & Transphobia and all efforts to eliminate discrimination. Guests will then be asked to “remove their masks” in a symbolic show of support for the LGBT community.

Date:  Saturday, May 11, 2013

Time:  5:00pm – 8:00pm

Location:  The Opposite House Sunken Garden & Green Room (Building 1, No. 11 Sanlitun Road)
