GGHK is officially inviting anyone and everyone to come out for the Games in November 2023! This campaign, developed by our partners at DDB Group Hong Kong, hopes to generate excitement and motivate people to start thinking about planning for the 11th Gay Games, taking place in Hong Kong in November next year. Featuring both an online video and a series of social media influencer activities, the campaign builds on the teaser video, “Everyone get ready to come out for the games”, released late last year. The launch video extends the invitation by showing a diverse range of people from a variety of ethnicities, sexual orientations, religions, gender identities, ages, abilities, professions, and backgrounds excitedly coming out to support the games. The campaign is well-timed to celebrate a series of events re-launching GGHK, including the Pride At Sea junk party, Sungay Tea Dance at CARBON, and an invitation-only one-day takeover of Water World Ocean park. As the world’s largest inclusive sports, arts and culture event, the Gay Games is expecting to welcome 7,000 participants and 25,000 spectators from more than 100 countries in November 2023, in addition to over 70,000 participants attending events leading up to the Games.
