The third annual Pink Dot carnival took place Sunday at West Kowloon Cultural District waterfront. Pink Dot is an annual event in Hong Kong in support of the LGBT community. The attendees gather to form a human version of a pink dot in order to show support for inclusiveness, diversity and freedom of love.
This year over 10,000 attended the festival.
Tim Grundy from Hong Kong Free Press (HKFP) spoke to attendees and sponsors who gave an overview of the fest. Professor Alfred Chan Cheung-ming, Chairperson of the Equal Opportunities Commission said, “This is the first time for me to take part in Pink Dot Hong Kong. I am really pleased to see people from different sectors, age groups and nationalities all gathered in West Kowloon to support this meaningful event that promotes diversity and inclusion.”
2016 Pink Dot was a big success and the LGBT community of Hong Kong is steadily pushing the boundaries of diversity outside the community.
