Rainbow Logos at HKU Criticized
A concern group dedicated to “family values” is threatening to organize protests and petitions against the University of Hong Kong if it refuses to remove the rainbow logo posted on its gender-neutral bathrooms. Roger Wong, convenor of the anti-gay-rights Family School Sexual Orientation Discrimination Ordinance Concern Group, said some parents had expressed concern that the rainbow logos would promote LGBT values on campus. Wong said that his group is not against unisex toilets, but that the rainbow logo was an “inappropriate” use of public money advocating values that challenge “mainstream” views on gender and sexuality. Meanwhile, a spokesperson for HKU says the gender-neutral toilets are part of the university’s effort to nurture an inclusive culture on campus. Our take: Rainbows are amazing! More rainbows please!
