TVB, a television broadcasting company in Hong Kong, is set to air the region’s first-ever gay dating show in November.

Actor Vinci Wong will be both producer and host of the series, Straits Times reports.

The 50-year-old toast the show, titled Boyscation, in an Instagram post on October 7.

“The most important chapter of my television career,” he wrote. “The most extraordinary attempt in the history of Hong Kong television.”

Boyscation is set to air on TVB’s J2 channel and will see 10 diverse contestants from all walks of life seeking love.

After coming out in 2013, Wong married her longtime boyfriend in 2016 and said he had wanted to work on a show like this for some time.

Speaking to the Oriental Daily News, he revealed that TV executives he had discussed the idea with supported the concept.

Wong was involved in the selection of candidates and hopes this will show the LGBTQ + community in a positive light.

“I hope there will be more channels for the younger generation to speak up and that more people will understand the community,” he shares.
