Hou Ping is an attorney-at-law, as well as an LGBTQ and women’s rights activist from China. She founded an entirely volunteer-based, women-led LGBTQ organization in eastern China. She was a 2015-2016 international fellow at PILnet: The Global Network for Public Interest Law. Currently, she is a visiting scholar at the Center for Gender and Sexuality Law in Columbia Law School.
