A Year Full Of Chickens! Next year is the Year Of Chicken, Choo Choo Workshop has designed a chicken cushion to celebrate the coming Chinese New Year. Needless to say, the cushion will be in the shape of chicken. Two newly developed cartoon characters, Ah Bao and her cat Lai Lai, are used for the graphic. The cushion is cutie, comfy and fluffy, and there are 2 little chicken feet hanging below the tummy, swing and sway freely, like the cartoon characters inside the comic book 'Still At The Starting Line', so adorable and silly that could make you smile.

Nu Tong Xue She (NTXS) hope that through showcasing books relevant to gender and sexuality issues, organizing activities such as book readings, seminars and sharing sessions, book fair, booths for LGBT-friendly organizations and a cozy reading corner for visitors during the Festival, a friendly and open environment for the general public to understand, explore and discuss the various facets of gender and sexuality could be created. In recent years, tension and even hostility between different social groups in Hong Kong has been growing stronger, pulling people farther apart as they uphold their own beliefs and bash those with differing opinions. The burning need for conversation is apparent. We would therefore like to make “Dialogue” the theme of the 2017 Festival. We hope that through reading, participants of the Festival can listen to, contemplate and respond to various issues related to gender and sexuality, to engage in a dialogue with themselves, family, friends and the society, to exchange knowledge and then to rethink the various possibilities of LGBT movement. Dates:Friday to Sunday, 17-19 February, 2017 Time:12:00 noon to 7:00 p.m Venue:Central Courtyard, Jockey Club Creative Arts Centre (JCCAC)

Sai Kung Stray Friends, a community funded non-profit organization in Hong Kong that cares for stray, abandoned and abused dogs, has been in dire need of funds to pay for rent, salaries to the full-time staff, food and medical expenses, and to maintain the beautiful area they have created for their dogs. These challenges are daunting, and eviction and euthanasia are distant but looming possibilities. My name is Ansh Sahay and I am 14. I’ve launched the ‘Save SKSF’ Project to ensure and secure a long lasting future for the foundation, the 100 dogs being taken care of there today, and the hundreds more that will be looked after in the future.
