Academic Warns Hong Kong Will Lose LGBT Talent

Local scholar Dr Suen Yiu-tung says his research shows city could face LGBT 'brain drain' if does not update laws.

Hong Kong risks losing some of its brightest talents if it does not start protecting its LGBTI citizens, Dr Suen Yiu-tung, assistant professor of the Gender Studies Programme at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, has warned.

In a column in local newspaper the South China Morning Post, the academic warned that "sexual migration"–-the international relocation motivated, directly or indirectly by sexuality—was going to hurt Hong Kong.

Dr Suen Yiu-tung's research revealed 39% of lesbian, gay, and bisexual people in Hong Kong had thought about leaving because of the lack anti-discrimination laws and that 48% had considered leaving because same-sex marriage was not legal.

Some 26% had considered leaving because of the difficulties facing same-sex partners who wanted children.

"It means that Hong Kong may be driving a significant proportion of the young and well-educated LGB workforce away because of the government's failure to provide legal protection and recognition for them," Dr Suen Yiu-tung wrote.

Same-sex marriage, overseas same-sex marriage, and anti-discrimination laws for LGBT do not exist in Hong Kong.

Dr Suen Yiu-tung said he hoped that Hong Kong Chief Executive hopeful John Tsang Chun-wah's plan to encourage people to stay would also involve creating a more more inclusive place for gay, lesbian, and bisexual people.

how do you now that someone Lesbian?
many lesbian get marriage with heterosexual men but the men do not realize that the women is lesbian.
Lesbian pretending heterosexual woman is easier than gay pretending heterosexual man on bed in some cases

what abuse is? when you like bread but others force you to eat rice that is abuse.
Principle of some religions are misdirection.
The misdirection pattern used by Politician to gain power and materialism and their freedom and to punish others.
That why some people said gay marriage is sexual abuse, this is patterns of misdirection behavior.

You all gays should know Law behaviors and where law come from? who steal or rob law.
Law has neutral Gender
But you see many heterosexual occupy Law / legislation position due to Education but they do not realize where the law come from?

Law was come from gay. Why? because heterosexual do not recognize kindness, but they just play game with kindness.

Gay is fact/ reality and gay marriage can be proved in everyday life by many kinds of science.
while miracle of Hollybooks can not be proved in everyday life,
Hollybooks just steal some reality to get confession and legality.
Hollybooks just emotion,passion, and irrational without honesty

The purpose of gay marriage is to avoid/reduce adultery/zina , prostitution, and other negative impact.
gay marriage is not same sex, its different sex : top and bottom

Top and bottom. What great labels. So you do believe in sexual difference and aren't blind to its existence as you previously pretended.

Have fun collecting and categorizing.
