Hong Kong, September 10, 2011 – Pink Season, Hong Kong’s first ever and Asia’s biggest LGBT festival kicks off on 30 September. It is an unprecedented collaboration between local LGBT organizations and artists over a 2.5-month period. The Pink Season schedule covers the Electric Pink music party, the glamorous Mr. Gay Hong Kong pageant, Floatilla – Party at Sea, Out in the Open – The All Inclusive beach carnival, Gay Day @ Disneyland plus the solidly established HK Lesbian and Gay Film Festival. Organizers are still planning for more activities with local artists and organizations, while looking to add a distinguished speaker series, plays, dance shows, painting exhibitions, and much more. Mr. Pink, Brian Leung (from RTHK’s “We are family”, aka DJ Bling), Ambassador for Pink Season, is confident the festival will provide a good platform for local talent to showcase their work to an international audience and demonstrate LGBT community’s contribution to Hong Kong.
Aiming to attract tourists from all over the world, the Pink Season hopes to garner support from the HKSAR government, the local population and LGBT-friendly establishments and become a force for positive development for the LGBT community.
