Runners inspire LGBT Community to be visible in Hong Kong after fourth place finish at The Great Relay

Hong Kong has seen a number of positive developments in relation to sporting activities even if political developments and LGBT rights have lagged behind. 

With OutRunners offering members of the LGBT community an active outlet if they want more than just clubs and bars, in combination with the establishment of “Out in Hong Kong”, which led to the successful bid to host the 2022 Gay Games, the LGBT Community has shown it can play an active part in the Community.
OutRunners is another example of how the LGBT Community is making a contribution in Hong Kong. There are two main purposes to OutRunners: an offering to members of the LGBT Community who wish to be active, outdoors and meeting other members of the Community away from bars and clubs; and to provide role models to show that it is possible for LGBT to be ‘out there’ and visible in the Hong Kong community and performing well in sports and activity-based leisure activities.
Thanks to these types of efforts, Hong Kong’s LGBT sporting and overall Community is growing in terms of size as well as acceptance.
