This report, published by the Centre for Comparative and Public Law, shows that 74% of the population of Hong Kong thinks that the LGBTQ community should have rights.
It also shows that 65% supports rights of visit in the hospitals and 61% are in favour of an anti-discrimination law.
But the same-sex marriage is not very supported. Indeed, only 27% of people said they are in its favour.
"In Hong Kong, the government presently provides virtually no legal recognition to same-sex couples," researchers Kelley Loper from the University of Hong Kong Faculty of Law said.
"Although the development of human rights protections should not be contingent on public opinion, our survey results indicate that there is ample public support for extending rights to committed same-sex couples, short of legalizing same-sex marriage."
