Hong Kong Pride Parade 2018
Call for the LAW, Equality for ALL

For this year's Hong Kong Pride Parade will be on Saturday, November 17, 2015. It will kick off at 2pm from Victoria Park, Causeway Bay. The march will end at Edinburgh Place, Central, where there will be performances and exhibition booths. The theme of this year's parade is " Call for the law, Equality for all." The organizing committee of the parade is formed by 5 local LGBT groups namely, Gay Harmony, Les Corner Empowerment Association, Rainbow of Hong Kong, Association for Transgender Rights and PrideLab. Hong Kong Pride has thus grown from strength to strength in turnout, Pride 2017 saw more than 10 thousand participants.

To allow people of different genders and sexual orientations to live as equals in society is a global trend. Yet, Hong Kong citizens remain unprotected by its law against sexual orientation discrimination. According to recent figures published by The University of Hong Kong’s Public Opinion Programme, a majority of over 2/3 citizens are supportive of relevant legislations. This shows that the truth will not be buried amid conservative groups’ smear campaigns; wise citizens will choose to stand on the side of equality and harmony.

This year, we adopted the theme of "Call for the Law, Equality for All" so that more can be introduced to a fundamental principle in human rights – we are all born with freedom, equal dignity and rights. Through promoting anti-discrimination ideals, we will persuade the government to shoulder its responsibility to legislate the sexual discrimination ordinance, thus allowing the spirit of equality to manifest in Hong Kong.
