Support for LGBT+ people has soared to record levels in Hong Kong, a new survey has found. The Sexualities Research Programme at the Chinese University of Hong Kong has just released the new figures. They show Hong Kong’s citizens do want same-sex marriage and to protect LGBT+ people from discrimination. Among the highlights of the report, 60% of people surveyed agree there should be legal protection against discrimination for lesbian, gay and bi people. Another 27% stayed neutral. And only 12% of those surveyed disagreed. That’s down from 35% in the last survey in 2016. Moreover, 49% of the respondents believe same-sex couples should be able to marry. Again, 28% stayed neutral and only 23% disagreed.
