Alfred Ip, Chairman of NGO Pink Alliance and Hugill & Ip Partner, told HKFP:

It is good news that four universities are taking the lead in recognising same-sex marriages. They are in good company with many other prestigious tertiary education institutions around the world.

Pink Alliance also finds it unfortunate that public institutions are taking the lead on this issue rather than our government, which is sadly slow to provide even basic legal protections against discrimination for the LGBTI community. They trail rather than respond to the swelling tide of public support for equal treatment for all.
