IDAHOT 2013 in Hong Kong saw major celebrities
and politicians stand up to support LGBT.

HONG KONG -- area code +852

General Information

    Hong Kong's gay scene is spread through neighborhoods on Hong Kong Island as well as across the harbor on the Kowloon side of the city (well worth exploring!). While homosexuality was decriminalized in the last century, and the Hong Kong Lesbian and Gay Film Festival is the oldest such event in Asia, gay life remains largely hidden because Hong Kong still manages to remain a "small town" where privacy is a luxury. Your laptop and smart devices will be buzzing with potential new friends eager to meet you. The scene is active with upscale venues, longrunning local gay zines, and creative special events like Pink Dot (a local incarnation of Singapore's LGBT visibility project).

    Hong Kong street graffiti: Leslie Cheung with
    the caption "No escape. Live the life you like."

    On Hong Kong Island most visitors will gravitate towards the cluster of international clubs in Shuang Wan, Central and its frenetic nightlife hub, Lan Kwai Fong. Another large cluster of island venues is located between Wanchai and Causeway Bay, discreetly hidden away in commercial buildings.

    Over in colorful Kowloon, which has a dense collection of easy-to-access gay clubs along the MTR corridor, crowds throng through neon-lit high-rise canyons, going to/from shopping, eating or partying at innumerable entertainment venues from Tsim Sha Tsui up to Prince Edward. If you are looking for a bit of old Hong Kong, take a taxi to "Kowloon City" where traditional shops and restaurants are still managing (barely) to fend off encroaching redevelopment.

    Hong Kong's population is nearing 8 million (that's over 300,000 Utopians).

      • Middle Bay
          South Bay Rd

          Mainly gay, esp. weekends. Take a bus to Repulse Bay and then a ten minute walk, past the Welcome supermarket, to South Bay. The gay area is in front of the 40-story Ruby Court Bld. Some cruising around. Swimming possible. Bring insect repellent. UTOPIAN VERIFIED JUN 2014

      • The rocks, Middle Bay
          Area between Middle Bay and South Bay, on the side with rocks on it

          This area seems to concentrate more gay-only men. Some nude sun-bathing (illegal) and action in the bushes (also illegal). Approach from South Bay Road. Steep path on the right-hand (sea side). Middle Bay is now so well-known that it is dangerous. For safety's sake it is better to make the 1-hour trip to Lantau Island and walk to the rather remote Cheung Sha Beach. UTOPIAN VERIFIED JUN 2014

      • South Bay

        Utopia Map

        MTR: TST or Jordan. Several cruisy facilities and lots of garden pathways. Very cruisy, especially near bird pond. Most action takes place after 11pm. The park closes at midnight, but you can always leave (and enter) through the gate at Austin Rd (all other gates are closed after midnight). So don't panic when you are late and think you are locked up in the park. Mostly Asian guys under 40 years old. Security is vigilant, so be discreet.

      KOWLOON -- Jordan, Mongkok, Tsim Sha Tsui, Yau Ma Tei

        112 Tung Choi St, Monkok, Utopia Map

        Foodie Alert! This tiny hole-in-the-wall has a disproportionate amount of international fame after recommendations by Newsweek, Time Out and celebrity chefs. Excellent dim sum at a reasonable price. Their dessert specialty is a succulent poached pear, so leave room. Sister branches in Jordan, Wanchai and TST.

        This ultra-funky little cafe/shop/gallery is run by a gay couple who have created an ecelectic jungle of colorful art and hippy-trippy apparel and gifts. Hipster international patrons. They are open only limited hours, so call first to make sure they'll be there.

    • Pak Tai food street UTOPIA VERIFIED JUN 2023, UTOPIA VISITED JUL 2014
        Pak Tai St, To Kwa Wan, Utopia Map.

        Located in east Kowloon, well off the tourist track (and overlooked by most locals), this quaint neighborhood stretch of eateries is certainly destined to be torn down and rebuilt into something gleaming, clean and modern. Too bad. Catch this slice-of-life from Kowloon's past for cheap eats and loads of character while you still can.
