Asia Pride Games 2022
Establishment of Asia Pride Games (APG)
In October 2021, Asia Pride Games Alliance was established in Taipei, Taiwan.
The event was postponed from 2021 to April of 2022 due to COVID-19 and officially named Asia Pride Games.
Through sports, APGA invites all Asian countries and regions to participate, to create a game that showcases a whole host of Asian elements.
The Games in Southeast Asia
The Straits Games was established in 2002 at the Strait of Ma-lacca as the first international gay sports event in Asia.
It was co-founded by a Malaysian LGBTQ organization, LPG, and a Singapore gay organization, MAW - in the hope of pro-moting friendship within the gay community and a healthy life-style.
Gradually, TSG has become an annual tradition, and the hosting city rotates to a different Asian city every year.
In 2006, for the first time, TSG was hosted by a third city (not Ma-laysia nor Singapore), by Phuket, Thailand.
In 2009, Taiwan hosted the 8th TSG for the first time.
In 2014, the name "Asia Gay Sports " was first coined, with the host-ing city as Guangzhou, China.
In 2020, the hosting city had been initially Phnom Penh, Cambodia, but was unfortunately canceled due to COVID-19. From TSG 2021 To APG 2022
From TSG 2021 To APG 2022
Taipei had successfully garnered its hosting right for TSG 2021 back in 2018.
However, due to COVID-19, the games were postponed from October 2021 to April 2022 (April 29 to May 3).
In October 2021, Asia Pride Games Alliance was established. Thus, the game “TSG 2021” was renamed “APG 2022”.
APG 2022 would be the first international LGBTQ sports event in Asia to welcome all gender, sexuality, and gender identity.
Whether as athletes or volunteers, we welcome anyone who loves sports and supports equality to join us.
APG 2022 includes 12 sporting events, cultural events, city tours, and in-ternational forums.
