While same-sex marriage is still not legalised in Hong Kong, the city remains one of the most welcoming cities in East Asia for members of the LGBTQ+ community and is even gearing up to host the Gay Games in 2023 (from November 3 to 11). Pride Month often falls off the radar in Hong Kong for June because the city's pride celebrations usually take place in November. But if you're looking for places to celebrate Global Pride this month, the city is peppered with bars, nightclubs, and LGBTQI-friendly spots that throw some of the most colourful parties and festivities in town. Whether you want muscly bartenders and karaoke, live entertainment, or just some decent drinks and to meet like-minded people, hit up any of these venues in the city.
RECOMMENDED: Following the recent developments of pandemic measures in the city, all patrons of bars and clubs must provide a negative RAT test before entering the premises. Click here to learn more.
