All products sold at the Pride Shop are made by either queer artists or allies who support and promote LGBTI rights. Since 2014, the Centre has been organising annual IDAHOT Visual Arts Competition to commemorate the depathologisation of same-sex sexual orientation in 1990 by WHO and to promote artistic expression around LGBTI issues in Mongolia. The original works submitted to the competition are sold here, with artists receiving 30-50% of the sales income. The remaining income is dedicated to the prize fund as well as logistical expenditure for the IDAHOT and Arts-4-Rights exhibitions in May and August respectively every year.
Love is Love is Mongolia’s first LGBT-themed comic book that was made possible thanks to the Youth Leadership for Human Rights Program of 2016 (funded by the Australian government). A team of young leaders organised the first same-sex love comic competition among manga genre lovers, and the Centre published the four prize-winning stories as a book.
My Friend is LGBT is a book for adolescents and young people that was made possible, again, thanks to the Youth Leadership for Human Rights Program of 2015 (funded by the Canadian government). A team of young leaders came together to develop this book as a handbook for youth on how to help friends and family in their coming out process. This book was printed in 1,000 copies in 2016 for free distribution to every secondary school library in Mongolia. We’re raising the funds for the second batch of 1,000 copies through the sale of 300 copies of the first print.
