CCPL research shows that a majority of people in Hong Kong are accepting of transgender people and support legislation prohibiting discrimination on the basis of gender identity. Led by Kelley Loper, CCPL’s Director,  Holning Lau from the University of North Carolina School of Law, Charles Lau from RTI International, and Yiu-tung Suen from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, the survey finds that a majority (80%) of Hong Kong said they are either very accepting, moderately accepting, or a little accepting of transgender people. In addition, 67% of people agreed that Hong Kong should have a law that protects people from being discriminated against because they are transgender.
