Shanghai Pride RunOver 200 people ran in Shanghai’s fifth annual Pride Run on Saturday.

Raymond Peng, one of the event’s organisers, said he hoped the event would provide a chance for participants to interact with Shanghai residents and let them know “we’re friends living under the same sun”.

This year’s event, which started at 9:30 AM local time (0130 GMT) featured six different routes throughout the city, ranging from 3km-15km (1.8 – 9.3 miles).

The Pride Run is part of Shanghai’s ninth gay pride celebration, which features four days of events but without a pride parade, coinciding with similar events in other cities around the world.

Organisers say about 6,000 people are expected to attend the four-day event themed “The Time is Now” that runs from June 15 to 18.
