China: Hong Kong Stalls on LGBT Rights Reform

Hong KongThe refusal of Hong Kong lawmakers to carry out a public consultation on improving LGBT rights has sparked outrage in the local community.

The Legislative Council voted down a motion to carry out a public consultation in November 2012, but LGBT rights groups had hoped that Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying might revive the idea in his first annual policy speech on Wednesday.

However, Mr Leung used his speech to confirm that the consultation would not be held, causing fresh anger among the LGBT community.
