New head of Hong Kong's equality watchdog appears cool on LGBT rights

He stated that a law to protect LGBT citizens from discrimination should not be ‘hastily made’.

The new head of Hong Kong’s equality commission, Ricky Chu Man-kin, did not promise to deliver much anticipated anti-discrimination legislation when he took office on Thursday (11 April). According to the SCMP, Chu said a ‘hastily made law’ could do more harm than good to society.

He also said the Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC) should be neutral to gain trust. But, Hong Kong’s only openly-LGBT lawmaker, Raymond Chan Chi-chuen, slammed Chu’s comments. ‘Ricky Chu’s understanding of his role as the EOC Chairperson is absurd’ he told Gay Star News, ‘you can’t be neutral when it comes to human rights and equal opportunities. It is his [Chu’s] job to promote equal opportunities.’
