‘Upset with Lam’s Lukewarm response’: 10,000 Attend Pride Parade Amid Calls for Hong Kong Laws to Protect LGBT Rights
Rainbow flags and blue balloons were part of the flamboyant displays on Hong Kong streets on Saturday as advocates and members of the LGBT community joined hands in the ninth annual Pride Parade, attended by 10,000 people, according to organisers. The festivities were held against the backdrop of an ongoing public consultation over the legal recognition of transgender and intersex people. Crowds clad in blue – the theme colour of the event – 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 Commission, Alfred Chan Cheung-ming.
