The five best events at this year’s Pink Season

Written by

One of Asia’s premier LGBTI+ festivals, Pink Season is back for its eighth year, bringing with it a formidable number of fantastic events supporting the key message of acceptance, inclusion and awareness. All the events are genuinely worthwhile – not to mention, free – but here are the five highlights that we think you absolutely mustn’t miss!

Coming Out 
A collaboration with the Boys & Girls Clubs Association of Hong Kong and the Queer and Straight Alliance, this event sees a panel discuss what it means to come out at home, in education and at work. Tue Oct 3, 7pm-9pm. Free. Goldman Sachs, 2 Queen’s Road Central, Central.

The Pink Season Variety Night
One of the most popular events of the entire season. Come have a drink, do some mingling and enjoy a laugh or two while watching a joyous selection of amateur performances, talent and stand-up comedy. Thu Oct 12, 8pm-11pm. Free. Boo Bar, 225 Nathan Road, Jordan.

A Very Feminem Floatilla Party
Feminem, Australia’s number one Adele impersonator, makes her Hong Kong debut! The night kicks off with a live vocal tribute to the Brit songstress, followed by the official floatilla opening ceremony and – the climax – a four-hour DJ set from Feminem herself! Sat Oct 14. 10pm-late. Free. FLM, 62 Jervois Street, Sheung Wan.

Health Matters
Teaming up with Aids Concern, this is your chance to learn about the health problems and solutions that most directly affect Hong Kong’s LGBTI+ community. Wed Oct 18, 7pm-9pm. Free. Naked Hub, 5-13 New Street, Sheung Wan.

Art Tuesday – Halloween Special
The final art show of the season promises to be the best (and campest) of the lot! The Halloween special features boundary-pushing illustrations and photography in graphic novel format and should, at the very least, be a bit of an eye-opener. Come along already dressed up or see one of the makeup artists on hand to get yourself Halloween ready! Tue Oct 31, 7.30pm-10pm. Free. Under the Barber, 33-35 Pottinger Street, Central.
