We are seeking groups that represent diversity, inclusion, and empowerment to perform in the Festival Village: in front of the iconic Hong Kong skyline for one of the most loving audiences in the world.

Gay Games stages are offered for established groups to participate, so start forming your band, vocal group or dance squad now. Any style is welcome because everyone is welcome.

All groups will join together on one night to perform together during the Gala Performance Showcase on the Festival Village stage.

Your group does not have to be ‘gay’, just support inclusion, diversity, and empowerment. This is a celebration of friends who share a perspective for a better world.

Performances become events that offer opportunities for the thousands of athletes and their supporters to meet, socialise, relax and make new friends.

Participation categories are 

  • Instrumental music (band or orchestra)
  • Vocal Group
  • Dance 
  • Performance Art and Cheer

Groups should be ‘chartered’ (a dated agreement among your team when you decided to form your act).
