Short film calls on citizens to break their silence on LGBT discrimination
“The Pantry” highlights workplace discrimination against Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) employees in Hong Kong.

The Pantry is based on true stories drawn from offices around Hong Kong. The film, which is the first in a series from AD Media, aims to raise awareness and hopes to inspire LGBT and LGBT-friendly citizens to break their silence and stand up for human rights.

Hong Kong continues to drag behind competition because the government chooses to ignore recent survey results* and bows before religious extremists instead, thereby denying equality rights to the very people whose taxes it relies on and, on the broader picture, ignoring calls from the United Nations Human Rights Commission to clean up its record.

*Community Business – Almost 80% of the surveyed Hong Kong working population think that LGBT individuals face discrimination or negative treatment.
According to a University of Hong Kong survey that was commissioned by Cyd Ho, nearly 76 per cent of respondents agreed there was discrimination against LGBT people in Hong Kong. More than 60 per cent said there should be legislation in place to protect the rights of homosexuals.

香港競爭力持續下滑,全因政府選擇無視最近民意調查結果*,向宗教極端勢力低頭,從而拒絕令所有納稅人享有平等權利,及在世界層面上,將聯合國人權委員會要求改善人權呼籲置之不理。

*社商賢滙—接近八成受訪在職人士認為LGBT人士面對歧視及負面對待

*立法會議員何秀蘭最近委託港大民研進行的民意調查,有接近76%受訪者同意香港LGBT人士受到歧視,有63.8%的受訪者認為本港應該有法例保障不同性傾向人士免受歧視。
