Everything You Need To Know About Pink Dot 2016

Sunday, September 25 marks the third edition of Pink Dot HK. Inspired by the success of Pink Dot Singapore, which began in 2009, the Hong Kong edition was started as a collaborative effort between non-profit groups BigLove Alliance and Pink Alliance.

Pink Dot HK is a non-political outdoor event that gives all people a chance to show their support for LGBTI issues through “inclusiveness, diversity and love equality.” 

The first event, titled “We are Family: The Freedom to Love,” took place in June 2014 at Tamar Park, and included a funfair and live music. The 2015 edition, also at Tamar Park, bore the tagline “Love is Love”—reflecting the ideal that if love is real, one’s gender is unimportant.

We've made you a handy-dandy poster to hold up at Pink Dot, or just to post onto social media! Nice, isn't it?

This year Pink Dot moves to the West Kowloon Cultural District. The theme, “Love Wins,” is inspired by the power of love to conquer all. There’s a carnival, flea market, workshops and more, plus performances from Anthony Wong Yiu-mingDenise Ho (aka HOCC), Pakho Chau, Chochukmo and Gin Lee. Not bad for a free event. Just remember to wear pink!
