Hong Kong’s lesbian bars are vanishing, but for LGBT people it’s actually a good sign in the traditionally conservative city

Tse Tong, the owner of Hong Kong’s first lesbian bar, does not mind that the lesbian bar scene in the city is declining as it reflects the traditionally conservative society’s increasing tolerance for LGBT people. Where once lesbians felt excluded and marginalised in most places in the city, and went to lesbian-only bars to find friends and lovers, nowadays the only two remaining such bars in the city are a very different type of venue: men and heterosexuals are also welcome. “[These bars] are no longer for meeting new singles,” Tong says. “They are a place for entertainment and for people to drink, which is different from the very beginning, when customers would come out every single week.”
