It’s morphing time

Eaton HK is known for promoting inclusivity through a series of regular cultural events. It is no surprise then that the hotel is contributing to the pride buzz in June with its very own series of celebration. “Pride at Eaton 2023: It’s Morphing Time” will offer a diverse range of arts and cultural programmes at various venues in Eaton HK.

Kicking off the month-long celebration are three events: “The Drag Dictionary: Drag Workshop,” “Ho Yuk (Let’s Love Hong Kong)” screening and post-screening talk, and an opening party called “Puff The Magic Drag Out” in anticipation of many more celebrations to come. View the full programme here.

For those looking for a cosy getaway with their partner, check out Eaton HK’s Love Is Love staycation package that comes with an exclusive queer neighbourhood guidebook, rainbow amenities, and selected cocktails at the in-hotel bar, Terrible Baby.

When: 10 June–22 July
