Full Chronological Biography

Brian Leung (Siu Fai), Hong Kong’s renowned radio personality and music critic, has been working in the local broadcasting industry for 2 decades. Over the years, Mr. Leung had taken up the post of music director for all of the three radio stations in Hong Kong – Radio Television Hong Kong, Commerical Radio and MetroBroadcast. His specialty is international music and repertoire. Even with a habit of moving from one channel to another, Mr. Leung still maintains a strong sense of integrity in his choice of music for his own shows as well as the overall music direction for the channels. From pop to modern rock to alternative to trip hop to dance to electronica… Brian’s shows have always been inspiring and ahead of the times.

Back in the mid-90’s, Mr. Leung was recruited by the famous (Taiwan)Rock Records as the MD for their Hong Kong office. His initial task was to set up Rock International, catering to the promotional and distributing needs of the licensed international labels, including Jive, Mute and Beggars Banquet. That’s when the then newly launched acts, such as Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears, enjoyed their first big break in the Pan-Asian region.

Mr. Leung launched his own web production company, So Corporation, back in 2000 in the heat of the first global IT crave. Apart from being the editorial contractor for the music contents of a number of portal sites (such as Tom.com), he also started a LGBT webcast – GayStation.com.hk. That was the very first LGBT netcast in Asia, streaming well-produced net programs on LGBT culture and issues. In 2003, he also launched a LGBT dating and friend-finding site, Member2.com, as a side-line venture.

Back in 2005, Mr. Leung was recruited as DGM by Singshine Communications, a Guangzhou-based renowned media company that specializes in radio programming, productions, sales, and marketing. Recently, Singshine Communications signed a long-term contract with Guangdong Radio, acting as the sole license for one of their channels, FM107.7. Mr. Leung was appointed as the Program Director for that channel. He is the first Hong Kong broadcaster that works within the Guangdong Radio institution.

On top of his radio management work in Guangzhou, he’s invited by Radio Television Hong Kong to guest-host two shows back in Hong Kong during the weekends –
Go West (every Sun midnight – 2am)
We Are Family (every Sat midnight – 2am)

In 2010, Brian’s RTHK program “We Are Family” was awarded the Winner Prize (Chinese radio category) in the 14th Annual Human Rights Press Award, organized by Hong Kong Journalists Association, The Foreign Correspondents’ Club and Amnesty International.

In 2011, Brian took up the post of Creative Director of Hong Kong’s renowned indie music label: People Mountain People Sea, created by Anthony Wong Yiu Ming.

Brian is currently the core member and appointed Chief Operating Officer of BigLove Alliance, a newly established NGO and collective initiated by out pop stars Anthony Wong Yiu Ming and Denise Ho in Jan 2013, in the fight for LGBT rights against discrimination.

In 2016, Brian was appointed by AIDS Concern as the ambassador for the promotion of safe sex and regular HIV testing. In 2016, he was awarded the Prism Award presented by the HK Lesbian and Gay Film Festival for his outstanding contributions to LGBT rights.
