The Gay Games include much more than sporting events — local culture and art are also highly emphasized. To that end Gay Games Hong Kong 2022 is planning to showcase unique local artistic traditions like calligraphy, Cantonese Opera, and martial arts displays. Alongside contemporary programmes that will display the region’s diversity through both historical material and cutting-edge works by established and emerging local artists. Hosting the Gay Games in Hong Kong is estimated to bring in one billion Hong Kong dollars spent on transport, accommodation, food, and beverages as well as shopping.
