Sunday was the first-ever Pink Dot Hong Kong, when over 11,000 people took to Tamar Park for a family-friendly celebration of LGBT love and identity. With a theme of “We are Family: The Freedom to Love,” the event offered picnics, celebrity appearances and performances by Lil’ Ashes, Anthony Wong and openly gay singer Denise Ho.

Organizers from  the BigLove Alliance and Pink Alliance were inspired to create the unique event by a similar celebration in Singapore that’s been an annual occurrence since 2009. Attendees were asked to wear pink shirts in an effort to create a “pink dot” in the middle of the city, and the park filled with pink lights after the sun set.

“Hong Kong already hosts a couple of well-known and well-attended public LGBT events but we felt that the city still needed one that was more inclusive,” says BigLove Alliance’s  Brian Leung . “The Pink Dot’s concept is especially designed to include not only all members of the local LGBT community but also their families and straight allies.”

Leung said he was “more than thrilled” by the turnout at the inaugural Pink Dot. “We wanted a fun family event for all and I think we got it!”
