Gender and sexuality inclusivity in Hong Kong discussion: Eunice Yung, Dennis Philipse, and Suen Yiu


Gender and sexuality inclusivity in Hong Kong discussion: Eunice Yung, Dennis Philipse, and Suen Yiu

June is marked by large numbers of people around the world as “Pride Month”. This event is celebrated by members of the LGBTQ+ community and many others as a positive affirmation of diversity and an assertion of equality under the law for everyone, regardless of their sexual orientation, and, along the way, it’s a chance to have some fun. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, many Pride Month events are being scaled down or are taking place online. Pride Month has been growing in size in Hong Kong and the most recent local survey on public attitudes towards members of the LGBTQ+ community conducted by the Sexualities Research Programme at the Chinese University in 2019/2020 showed increasing support for equal rights for people of all sexual orientations. Despite that, some legislators have said that they are adamantly opposed to law reform and have concerns about Hong Kong’s plans to host the first Gay Games Asia next year.

The Pulse

RTHK's English-language current affairs programme that takes "The Pulse" of Hong Kong ... and the world around it.

"The Pulse" is presented by locally and internationally known journalist and writer Steve Vines.

Its focus? The latest events and trends that affect Hong Kong - from the corridors of power and business boardrooms, to the streets and dai pai dongs.

"The Pulse" is politics. What's happening in the Legislative Council and on the streets right now.

"The Pulse" is the media, informing us how well or badly our press and broadcast organisations diagnose and reflect the society around us.

"The Pulse" is insightful, in-depth reports and interviews on current issues - examining those issues in depth, looking behind and beyond the news.

Its focus is on the timely. The Now.

Keep your eye ... and your finger ... on "The Pulse".

If you want to discuss anything you've seen in "The Pulse", or anything in the public eye right now, or just to talk about the show, why not join in the debate on our Facebook page, RTHK's The Pulse. 

Starting 3 April, the programme is aired every Friday on RTHK 31 at 19:30.
