Rain­bow Lo­gos at HKU Crit­i­cized

HK Magazine - - NEWS -

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!
