Hong Kong’s LGBT rights activists have renewed their push for marriage equality by launching the city’s first pressure group dedicated to putting same-sex unions on the statute books. The group hopes Hong Kong can follow in the footsteps of Taiwan, which recently legalised the marriages after a landmark court case. Hong Kong Marriage Equality, a non-profit organisation launched last Thursday to coincide with the Qixi Festival, also known as the Chinese Valentine’s Day, will begin a campaign blitz in the coming months, involving community-based activities and focus group research, in an attempt to win over people who do not already sympathise with their cause.
