我的彩虹中国路

张锦雄(Ken仔)

不讲不知,为何我会选择离开香港,更多时间投身内地。除了「推因」,还有「拉因」......


话说2009年,「香港彩虹」提交予「艾滋病信托基金」的项目书包括男男性接触者社群艾滋病预防以及倡导反歧视公众教育两大部份,但只获拨款资助前者;基于对机构的运作和发展存着意见分歧,最终,另一位创办人接手管理「首间为同志而设的区服务中心」。


作为百分百公开身的同志艾滋病患者,兼念社会工作出身,过去于香港多间大专院校的公共卫生、社会工作、社会学、心理学、通识教育、宗教及哲学学系等课堂作分享,亦曾为社会福利署和主流社福机构社工培训课程担任导师,我深知现身说法的倡导教育之重要性。


其实早于2007年,作为「北京爱知行研究所」理事(至今),不时参与各样工作会议和夏令营,跟「中国艾滋病民间组织全国联席会议」的友好分享香港同志组织工作经验时,我已看到内地的庞大需要。近年,作为香港中文大学公民社会研究中心「公民社会访问学人计划」的指定嘉宾讲员之一,有机会接触一轮又一轮来自各地的公益人,更是加强了我的使命感,希望能为推动祖国公民社会发展出一分力。


基缘巧合,广州大学城「同城区」的两位负责人来港访问不同民间组织,让我了解到内地年青新一代积极在校园推动性教育和公益活动,需要更多经验传授和实质支持;于是,我毅然返广州,拜访各个友好组织,促成之后的合作。


在没有资助项目,没有办公室和受薪员工,我试着边打散工(餐厅兼职服务员),边善用空档往来粤港两地。毕竟,广州离香港较近,交通住宿费用自己能够负担得来。从中山大学,到华工、华师,再到广外、华农、广美等高校,去讲有关艾滋病及/或同性恋的议题。


20092010年,每个月我大概有数天不在香港,集中在广东地区,积极参与「朋友公益」与「同城区」开展的性别课程公选课,担当嘉宾讲员,偶尔去一下北京(酷儿影展)、沈阳和台湾(快乐生命大会)。「彩虹中国」与「爱知行」合办了「香港同志游行活动营2009」,赞助约三十位来自各地的男同防艾组织的代表来港,参与平权活动兼交流研讨。


2011年暑假,获欧阳文风牧师个人慷慨资助,与他同行去了广州和成都,为当地的同志组织做分享,除了同志平权和滋防治,也谈及基督宗教和同性伴侣关系;之后我自费去了重庆几天,与当地两个同志组织进行交流培训。11月,应「爱知行」邀请,我去了郑州、南京和武汉等地,为当地的学生组织做分享和培训。逐渐我在内地的时间增加至三分之一。


过去两年,作为「同城区」「『光合作用』校园LGBT领导力培育计划」一、二期的嘉宾讲员,有幸认识到一位又一位来自不同地区有心志于发展同志公益事业的大学生年青人,我应邀或主动去到深圳、长沙、南昌、武汉等地,支持及督导一下他们开展校园的工作。


也因为过去两年应「澳门教育暨青年局」邀请,为当地的老师、社工和校医做培训时所收到的反饙,现在尽量安排男朋友和我一起去做分享,因为有他在场,大家很自然地消除对艾滋病的恐惧(事关跟感染者有亲密关系的人都没被传染),同时亦增加对同性恋的了解和接纳。


2012年起,在内地的时间逐渐增加至三分之二,随着讲课和出差的次数增多,已经没法再做兼职,我开始了依靠讲员费、稿费和友好捐助来维持基本生活的生涯。谨此特别鸣谢马丁先生与其「贝利马丁基金会」的支持!


8月,我短期获聘于「爱白成都青年中心」,29天开展了21场活动,包括各样主题的沙龙、讲座、志愿者培训工作坊、分别为男同志和滋感染者而设的成长小组(四节)和支持小组(六节),还有在医院病房里做讲座。除了网上外展咨询,亦处理了十多个个案面谈(包括同志伴侣),共接触近百位男同志,收获丰富,为往后的工作带来不少启发......


9月我与来自「台湾露德协会」的同工兼确诊阳性十年的光哥去福建一个星期,与福州、夏门和泉州的感染者进行两岸三地的交流培训;11月「香港同志游行2012」之后,我还去了山东,在济南的两个星期,为当地及聊城、德州的女男同志和滋感染者举办各样沙龙讲座、培训工作坊及支持小组。


世界艾滋病日前后,从南京到长沙、珠海、修水、九江和南昌;除夕元旦前后,从广州到武汉、北京和上海,马不停蹄地做了一系列的活动,包括接受多家媒体记者采访,以及由「东珍书院」安排的几场高校讲座和学生社团交流培训,还有与各地的滋感染者欢渡节庆。


受台湾滋感染者亚辉的启蒙,2007年起连续三年121日(世界艾滋病日)晚,我与「香港彩虹」的志愿者于铜锣湾街头举行「真情拥抱滋」。「彩虹中国」成立后,我决意每年最少去一个省市做这样的倡导反歧视活动,2010年在广州、2011年在武汉、2012年在南京举行。2011年平安夜,于南昌与当地的艾滋感染者刘九龙做了一场;201315日于「夏门国际马拉松比赛」亦做了一场。每次我们都动员不少年青志愿者参与,且均获媒体正面报导,把平等、关爱的讯息传递开去!

 

My Road of Rainbow China
Founder of Rainbow China
Cheung Kam Hung Kenneth
2013 January 31

You may not know if I don't tell. Why would I choose to leave Hong Kong and spend more time in Mainland China? It’s not only because of various push factors, there are also pull factors.
Back in 2009, a proposal was submitted by Rainbow of Hong Kong to Council for the AIDS Trust Fund that involved two main p⋯⋯arts: (i) The prevention of HIV/AIDS among the MSM (Men who have Sex with Men) and (ii) The promotion of public education on anti-discrimination. However, only the first part was sponsored. Due to the different opinions on the operations and development of the organization, in the end, it was another founder that picked up the work to manage the “First Community Service Centre for LGBT” .
Identified as a public known Gay Man with HIV/AIDS, I have studied social work, shared in courses of public health, social work, sociology, psychology, general education, religious studies and philosophy among the tertiary institution in Hong Kong, lectured for Social Welfare Department and mainstream social welfare organizations in their social work training. I strongly understand the importance of first-hand experience of a model for the promotion of education.
In fact, since Year 2007, I have been a committee member of Beijing AIZHIXING Institute of Health Education, participating in various work meetings and summer camps, sharing the work experience LGBT  in Hong Kong with friends in China HIV/AIDS CBO Network. I see huge needs in Mainland China. Recently, as one of the guest speakers in Civil Society Visiting Fellow Program of Civil Society of Centre for Civil Society Studies, Chinese University of Hong Kong, I have a chance to communicate with visiting scholars from different places. My sense of mission is strengthened, hoping to contribute to the promotion of civil society in Mainland China.
Coincidently, two persons-in-charge of Gay and Lesbian Campus Association from Guangzhou, who has visited different NGOs in Hong Kong, allowed me to have a better understanding on how the new generation in Mainland China is keen to promote sex education and community work on campus positively. They need the sharing of experiences and practical support. Therefore, I went to Guangzhou, visited various friendly organizations in order to initiate collaborations in the following period.
Without a funding body, there is no office and waged-employee. I tried to take up some freelances jobs (in catering), travelling between Hong Kong and Guangzhou in my spare time. Since Guangzhou is near to Hong Kong, the transportation and accommodation fees are affordable. I started giving lectures about HIV/AIDS and LGBT in various tertiary institutions such as Sun Yat-sen University, South China University of Technology, South China Normal University, Guangdong University of Foreign Studies, South China Agricultural University and Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts.
Between 2009~2010, I was out of Hong Kong for a few days each month, mainly in Guangdong areas. I was a guest speaker in the Public Selected Courses of Gender Studies that was jointly developed by Friends Steam and Associated Gay/Les Campus, occasionally Queer Film Festival in Beijing, Shenyang and the International Happy Life Conference in Taiwan. Rainbow China and AIZHIXING jointly organized the Hong Kong Pride Parade Activities Camp 2009, sponsored about 30 representatives of HIV/AIDS prevention organizations from various regions to Hong Kong, participated the equal right activities and exchange conferences.
In the summer of 2011, I was sponsored generously by Rev. Oyoung Wen Feng. I visited Guangzhou and Chengdu with him to share in local LGBT organizations, not only on the topic of LGBT equal rights and HIV/AIDS prevention, but also on Christianity and relationship between same sex partners. Following that, I have stayed behind and visited Chongqing at my own cost for the exchange with two local LGBT organizations there. In November, I was invited by AIZHIXING to visit Zhengzhou, Nanjing and Wuhan for the sharing and training among local student organizations. My time involved in Mainland China has increased to 1/3 of my time.
In the past two years, as a guest speaker for “Photosynthesis” Youth Leadership of Campus Project Phase I and II organized by Associated Gay/Les Campus, I am pleased to meet with young people in universities who are devoted to develop the community for LGBT wholeheartedly. I also have been invited or initiated to visit Shenzhen, Changsha, Nanchang and Wuhan, etc. supporting and supervising their campus developmental work.
Also, Macao Educational and Youth Affairs Bureau has invited me to share with local teachers, social workers and campus doctors in the past two years. I got some feedbacks during the training. Now, I do my best to arrange my boyfriend to accompany with me to have sharing together. Due to his presence, everyone feel easy and natural to reduce the fear of HIV/AIDS (because the one who have intimacy with PLWHA (People living with HIV/AIDS) have not been infected), meanwhile, it enhances the better understanding and acceptance of LGBT.
From 2012 onward, my time in Mainland China has increased by 2/3. Due to the increasing frequencies of lectures and trips, I cannot hold a part-time job anymore. I start to rely on the speaker fee, author's remuneration and donation from friends to maintain my basic life. Special acknowledgement to Mr Martin and his Barry & Martin's Trust for the support.
In August, I was employed by Aibai Chengdu LGBT Youth Centre temporarily. There were 21 activities within 29 days, including the salon, seminars, volunteer training workshops of various themes, also a four-session growth group for Gay men and six-session support group for PLWHA, and seminars in hospitals. Apart from the online outreaching consultation, more than 10 cases of interviews (including gay couples) are settled. Almost 100 MSM are contacted with good harvest. It inspires my work in the future.
In September, I visited Fujian for a week with Henry Lan, a co-worker of Taiwan Lourdes Association who has also been HIV positive for 10 years. We have shared with those who are infected among Fuzhou, Xiamen and Quanzhou and carried out an exchange and training in Greater China. After the Hong Kong Pride Parade 2012 in November, I went to Shandong. I stayed in Jinan for two weeks, a series of salon, seminar, training workshop and support group for LGBT and PLWHA with various topics were held in Laiocheng and Dezhou.
Before and after World AIDS Day, I travelled from Nanjing to Changsha, Zhuhai, Xiushui, Jiujiang and Nanchang; before and after New Year Eve, I went from Guangzhou to Wuhan, Beijing and Shanghai. A series of non-stop activities were held, including interviewed by media, a few seminars in a high school arranged by Dongjen Book Club; exchange and training among student communities as well as a festival celebration with the PLWHA.
Enlightened by Ahui, a PLWHA of Taiwan, I organized “Free Hugs for HIV/AIDS” with volunteers from Rainbow of Hong Kong in the street of Causeway Bay on the night of 1 December (World AIDS Day) in the consecutive three years since 2007. With the setting up of Rainbow China, I determine to go to at least one province to promote such anti-discrimination activities, including 2010 in Guangzhou, 2011 in Wuhan and 2012 in Nanjing. One the Christmas Eve of 2011, free hug activity was held in Nanchang with local PLWHA, Liu Jiulong; similar free hug was held on 5 January 2013 in Xiamen International Marathon. We have mobilized some young volunteers to participate every time, and they have received a positive report from media, spreading out the message of equality, love and concern.
