The 8th Pink Season HK festival is here, so prepare to celebrate love, acceptance and show your support for the rights of LGBT persons. Attend 28 fun themed events over a period of five weeks, including open air cinema and boat parties
Hong Kong is a city that often seems driven by materialism. With its trendy hotels and exclusive bars, outsiders may see the region as purely a hedonist’s playground. However, those of us who live here know that there is also lot of warmth and heart, including charity dinners and Pink Season HK, an annual LGBT festival that celebrates the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer and intersex persons and ultimately the purest feeling, love.
Live, laugh and love: get ready for the 8th Pink Season HK festival

Asia’s premier LGBT festival, Pink Season HK, features 28 themed events over a period of five weeks starting 30 September to 4 November 2017. The festival is a non-profit charity organisation that aims to break down prejudices and support the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer and intersex persons. The festival is a celebration of acceptance, inclusion and above all love, not only within the LGBT community but the city of Hong Kong.
Events and activities
Pink Season HK brings exciting and heart-warming programmes each and every year through art, education, entertainment and adventure events, and this year will be no exception. See the art shows, sit in the open air cinema to see the iconic performances including Priscilla Queen of the Desert and the Rocky Horror Show or set sail with Hong Kong’s largest LGBT party on the water with Floatilla. For those who of you who are more active, join the Urban Race, work in teams to solve and accomplish missions to ultimately win the race or attend the annual sports day filled with friendly competitions.
The family-friendly festival also offers events such as a rainbow family picnic and an afternoon bike ride with a BBQ dinner at the end of it. Hear different coming out stories and learn how to become an ally for the LGBT community. For those still uncertain and afraid to come out, feel educated with talks of self-acceptance, meet others with similar experiences and feel deeply inspired.
Love. Is. Love, and all are welcome to come and show support for the community. Bring your family, friends and lovers – We will see you there!
