A Pink Alliance vigil took place on Friday evening to commemorate the International Day Against Homophobia & Transphobia (IDAHOT) 2014.
Activists and their supporters braved stormy weather in Chater Garden to raise awareness of human rights violations against sexual minorities in the city and around the world.
It has been a mixed year for the community. A recent survey revealed that three quarters of Hong Kong would like to see more equal rights for gays and there was a record turnout at November’s Gay Pride Rally. Also, in January, the Court of Appeal upheld a gay activist’s right to dance during a 2011 rally.
