In its fourth year as the premier LGBTQI+ workplace inclusion conference in China, the 2021 Out & Equal China Forum will bring together hundreds of LGBTQI+ and ally professionals from national and multinational companies in the APAC region in partnership with our China Business Inclusion Council.
We have transformed our annual conference into quarterly virtual engagements and publications, with each quarter following a particular theme. Each quarter will include an interactive, virtual event featuring remarks from partner executives and the chance for attendees to learn and share best practices. Leading up to each event, Out & Equal will release resources to advance understanding of the particular theme.
The theme that we will focus on during the first quarter of 2021 is Trans and Nonbinary Inclusion.

As a queer and non-binary filmmaker from a small town in China, Moxie’s subjects are often the working class in modern China, immigrant ethnic minorities in the US, and folks in the queer community, and they often address intersectionality among them.
