Our mission

Hong Kong is a city of so many diverse cultures, a treasure chest of traditions, a melting pot of languages and home to a population of 7+ million proud people.

The Gay Games have never before been held in Asia, the World’s largest continent and home to an estimated 221 million LGBTQ+ people. But Asia is also a region where there is an on-going struggle to overcome homophobia and acceptance. 

We believe that hosting the Games for the first time here will be an amazing experience for the whole World: for people who have never been to Asia it will be a chance to experience the kindness, the culture, the food and the different ways of life of this part of the World.

For people from Asia it will be a great opportunity to join the event close to their homes. It will be a never-to-be-forgotten experience to Participate, to strive for their Personal Best and to feel the Inclusiveness of joining an event that’s bigger than themselves in a sport, arts & culture event festival together with more than 12,000 participants and >75,000 spectators.

GGHK stands for #UnityInDiversity and everyone aged 18/+ is welcome to participate regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnicity, or even training level, because we believe that GGHK will bring our diverse communities together in the name of Sport, Friendship and Fun!

Thank you all for your constant, unwavering support.
