HONG KONG, NOVEMBER 2023 - OPEN TO EVERYONE!

Gay Games 11 Hong Kong 2022 Announces Postponement to 2023

 
After much internal deliberation and in consultation with the Federation of Gay Games  leadership and board, it has  been decided that the 11th Gay Games in Hong Kong (GGHK), originally scheduled for November 2022, will be postponed to November 2023. 
 
This decision has been made primarily due to the unpredictable progression of COVID variants and the corresponding travel restrictions that continue to make it challenging for participants from around the world to make plans to travel to Hong Kong. 
 
We want to honour our original vision of organising the most inclusive and diverse Games yet. With many parts of the world, including many across Asia, still struggling to contain the virus and facing uneven access to vaccines, we felt that delaying the Games until November 2023 will enhance the likelihood of delivering on our promise to have the Hong Kong Games serve as a beacon of hope for the wider community across the region.
 
Postponement gives us, and participants around the world, added certainty that we can deliver on our promise to unite and celebrate diversity with the widest possible attendance from Asia and internationally. 
 
Inclusion, solidarity, community, and resilience. These four words are the bedrock of identity for the Gay Games, guiding us through this major decision.  Anti-inclusion objections to GGHK from a small but vocal minority have galvanised the resolve of our 300 volunteers, and brought overwhelming support from the general public, business community, and legislators. Mrs. Carrie Lam, Hong Kong Chief Executive, has also expressed her support for the spirit of inclusion and diversity of the Games. The exact date in 2023 will be confirmed soon, after further consultation with FGG. Please check this website for the latest updates regarding Gay Games Hong Kong.

We would like to thank everyone for their early support and will ride this wave of positivity to the most successful hosting of Gay Games 11 Hong Kong in 2023.
