The latest of HX Production's gay events, China Pride, with three parties (Kickoff on Friday night, Redemption on Saturday Night and T-
Dance on Sunday evening) took place over the weekend of 1st October.
The main party was Saturday's Redemption, which attracted well over 1,000 partygoers at the Hong Kong Exhibition Centre.
First on the decks was DJ Atsushi from Japan, who got the crowd all warmed up, followed by a fashion show of SPY by Henry Lau with lots of gorgeous models, special lighting effects and even artificial snow. After that, US-based DJ Luke Johnstone, well-known to many in the local scene, came up. He played a set in his trademark style, mixing uplifting funky house and progressive. Just 45 minutes into his set, he was unfortunately interrupted by the police, who after first doing a license check, decided it was ânecessaryâ to do an identity check as well. Most of the people simply took this inconvenience in their stride, and partied on until well after the announced closing time of 5am, to make up for the disruption.
Overall, the event was impeccably organised by the HX Production team, and thanks to them, the DJs, and everyoneâs determination to have a good time, the night turned out hot, sweaty and well.
