SCMP: “Gay Games offer chance to ‘empower’ and ‘connect’, Hong Kong organisers say, as momentum builds for November 2022 event”

“I really believe sports has this unifying power. I think it would be an opportunity for the city to see everyone coming together in a positive, inclusive manner.”

Lisa Lam

The Hong Kong edition marks the first time the event will be held in Asia, with the nine-day spectacle of sports, culture and arts expected to attract 12,000 participants and 75,000 visitors to the city, and inject HK$1 billion (US$130 million) into the economy.

Open to everyone, not just members of the LGBT community, people can sign up as individuals or teams to participate.

“I think [November 2022] is the right timing, because it’s a great way to connect and people might be ready for this event by then”
