Aesop's Free Queer Library Lands in Hong Kong

The brand continues to show support for the LGBTQIA+ community.

After opening in London, New York, Los Angeles, Toronto and Osaka, Aesop has now landed in Hong Kong for its free Queer Library celebrating LGBTQIA+ authors and their books.

The library has taken over Aesop’s Hong Kong store located on Gough Street, featuring 45 titles curated by the brand’s local staff and ZtoryTeller, a Hong Kong-based platform. Like previous renditions of the pop-up, visitors are offered one book of their choice from the library without any purchase required.

Aesop opened its first Queer Library last year, followed by launches in cities all around the world. The books in the Hong Kong library are accompanied by commissioned works of art created by queer artist Jeffrey Cheung, which are displayed in the store space. Authors highlighted include Canaan Fong, Samwai Lam and Yin Lo, in addition to a Queer Cities Guide for Hong Kong and Macau and a Pride playlist put together by Aesop’s close friends in the LGBTQIA+ community.

Take a look inside Aesop’s Hong Kong Queer Library above. The space is open until October 31 and will be followed by miniature versions throughout the city at Hysan Place, Gough Street and Festival Walk until November 20.
