Bonne Chance Party

Where: Petticoat Lane – LGF, 57-59 Wyndham St

Founded in San Francisco in 1982, the Gay Games are the largest global sport and cultural gathering open to all, regardless of ability, age, sexual orientation, race, gender, nationality, political or religious beliefs, ethnic origin or HIV status or sporting abilities. The Gay Games motto is all about bringing unity in diversity, and Hong Kong’s one of a kind geographical location, unique culture, and superior sports venues will provide opportunities for all participants to excel. In addition, Hong Kong’s barrier-free environment for disabled citizens enables easier access for athletes with disabilities to participate in the Gay Games sporting events.
If you’re interested in learning more, you can download the complete Bid Book here. It is our team’s first proposal submitted to the Gay Games Federation earlier this year and includes details on the 36 planned sporting events (including 3 local sports for the first time ever: Dragon Boating, Trail Running and Tower Running), culture events (including the choral concert, poetry slam, film festival and local artists exhibitions), the #GGHK2022 team, Hong Kong attractions and sporting facilities and more!
