In 2019, Taiwan proudly became the first and only country in Asia to legalize same-sex marriage, serving as a beacon of hope and progress for the LGBT community throughout the continent. In contrast, Hong Kong, known as “Asia’s World City,” has found it challenging to keep up with its regional counterparts in terms of LGBT rights and recognition.
Nevertheless, the Hong Kong LGBT community persists in nurturing voices and stories that defy convention and challenge the status quo. Their captivating performances and deeply personal narratives will not only touch your heart but also stimulate your mind, prompting you to contemplate the need for change.
Join us, and become a part of the unfolding story that celebrates the courage, resilience, and beauty of the LGBT community.
LGBT IN HONG KONG TOURS

Drag Queens’ Cultural Odyssey
Drag queens represent a distinct and vibrant presence within the LGBTQ+ community. These individuals, typically men, don extravagant and alluring costumes, apply heavy makeup, and perform onstage. However, public knowledge about drag queens remains limited, and they often face derogatory labels such as “ladyboy” or “transvestite.” The discrimination and prejudice they encounter are frequently misunderstood.
Beneath their dazzling and captivating exteriors, drag queens embody the courage to confront discrimination and prejudice, as well as the conviction to embrace their true selves—an attitude that deserves our admiration and respect.
We have the privilege of hosting a prominent figure from Hong Kong’s drag queen scene, who delivered a stunning performance and shared her experiences and stories with our audience. By engaging with the narratives of the two distinct identities embodied by a single individual, we hope to foster a deeper appreciation for the world’s diversity and the boundless potential of life itself.
Artistry in Knots – Japanese Bondage Show
The art of Shibari (Bondage) is more than just tying knots; it’s an art of trust and understanding between the artist and the model, and a connection that extends to the audience. The tension of the performance stirs emotions, transforming Shibari into a compelling form of performance art.
Are you ready to experience this alternative display of Shibari, to step into their world, and to truly appreciate its aesthetics?
Burlesque Dance Show
Often misunderstood as striptease, Burlesque is a captivating performing art that’s less popular in Hong Kong and across Asia. Combining sexy costumes and flirtatious dance moves, it begs the question: is it purely a sexually enticing performance, or is it a creative means of asserting sexual autonomy?
Our special guest, Mary Foxworth, who is deeply entrenched in the world of finance and law in Hong Kong, has courageously broken free from societal norms. She underwent a remarkable transformation to become a sexologist and, through the art of Burlesque dance, she aims to inspire the people of Hong Kong to reclaim their sexual autonomy!
In this event, you won’t just be “watching” the show; you’ll be immersed in the enchanting world of Burlesque with Mary’s captivating performance. Also, you’ll have the opportunity to attend a “lecture” on various intriguing aspects of sexual autonomy. Don’t miss out on this unique and empowering experience!
Central Rainbow March
