Rainbow flags and blue balloons were on Hong Kong streets on November 25 as advocates and members of the LGBT community joined hands in the ninth annual Pride Parade, attended by 10,000 people.

Crowds marched from Victoria Park in Causeway Bay to Edinburgh Place in Central. Attendees included more than a dozen top diplomats, several Hong Kong legislators and the chairman of the Equal Opportunities comission Alfred Chan Cheung-ming.

Spokesman for HK Pride, Jimmy Sham Tsz-kit, told the press that  he was disappointed that Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor and Secretary for Constitutional and Mainland Affairs Patrick Nip Tak-kuen did not accept their invitation to attend the event. He said “We hope the new government will stop procrastinating and push for an anti-discrimination ordinance for sexual minorities,” Sham said. “We are upset to see Carrie Lam’s lukewarm response to pleas to protect the rights of sexual minorities.”

 

We chose blue as the theme colour to represent the sky and ocean, which symbolised freedom and equality.

 

Currently, Hong Kong does not recognise same-sex marriages and does not have any legislation against discrimination based on sexual orientation.
