Opposition to LGBT+ legal rights in Hong Kong at historic low, according to Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) survey

The survey was commissioned by the university’s Sexualities Research Programme and involved a sample of 1,058 Chinese-speaking people aged 18 or above, who were contacted between September 16th and 25th last year.

The results – released on January 7th – showed that 60 per cent of the respondents said they agreed or very much agreed that there should be legal safeguards against discrimination based on sexual orientation in Hong Kong. It marked an increase from 56 per cent of respondents in a similar survey conducted by the Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC) and CUHK in 2016.
Twenty-seven per cent said they were neutral on the question of LGBT+ legal protection. The remaining 12 per cent said they disagreed or very much disagreed, representing a significant decrease from 35 per cent in the 2016 EOC-CUHK survey.
In another question, 49 per cent of the respondents said they agreed or very much agreed that homosexual people should be able to marry their partner. Twenty-eight per cent stayed neutral on the topic of same-sex marriage, while 23 per cent said they disagreed or very much disagreed with it.

It might be time to introduce a bill to stop discrimination based on Sexual orientation in Hong Kong. Right now people in Hong Kong are more sympathetic to people's rights.
