Hong Kong Awarded 2022 Gay Games After Defeating Mexico and the United States

Hong Kong will be the first Asian city to host the Gay Games (Hong Kong 2022)

Hong Kong has been named as the first Asian city to host the Gay Games after being awarded the 2022 event, seeing off strong competition from the United States and Mexico.

They were awarded them beating US capital Washington D.C. and Mexican city Guadalajara at the Federation of Gay Games (FGG) General Assembly in Paris.

"The FGG congratulates Hong Kong on being named the 2022 Gay Games XI presumptive host and being the first host city in Asia," Joanie Evans, Co-President of the FGG, said.

"We thank Guadalajara and Washington, D.C. for their incredible bids and helping further our mission of promoting equality in and through sport and culture."

It marks only the second time a city outside of North America and Europe will host the quadrennial event.

The FGG has made a commitment to diversity and expanding outside of North America and Europe with scholarship funds and other efforts.

The selection of the Chinese city strengthens that commitment.

Washington's delegation, led by the city's Mayor Muriel Bowser, acknowledged afterwards that negative international reaction to US President Donald Trump may have contributed to the decision to overlook the American candidate.

The 2018 Gay Games are due to take place in Paris next August.
