First, according to the study conducted in 2017 by the Centre for Comparative and Public Law, 78% of people living in Hong Kong are in favor of LGBT couples getting the same rights than straight couples. That's 4% more than in 2013.
Also, 50.4% of Hong Kong people are in favor of marriage equality. This represents a very sharp rise. In 2013, only 38% of respondents were in favor of a marriage law for same-sex couples.
About discrimination, 69% favor protection based on sexual orientation. This represents an increase of 11%!
“Our study shows that support for the rights of same-sex couples has grown markedly over a short period,” said professor Yiu-tung Suen.
“A few years’ time has made a significant difference.
“Our study also illuminates a discrepancy between law and public opinion.
“While 69 percent of Hong Kong people said they favor having a law to protect against sexual orientation discrimination, the government of Hong Kong has yet to enact such legislation.”
It's always the same problem.
