The trans movement in mainland China is at its early stages and rapidly growing. Particularly in the past two years, there has been a strong rise in trans activism and advocacy. There have been more trans individuals willing to be publicly visible, and more efforts are being made within the larger LGB community to support the articulation of trans communities. In December 2016, a two-day conference with trans activists and advocates was held in the eastern Chinese city of Ningbo, aiming at not only facilitating exchange to support participants' work but also initiating a community-based consultation to map out the current situation of trans people across the country. This article seeks to present the qualitative information gathered during the event in regard to the communities' most pressing needs in order to provide an informed direction for the trans movement in the country.
