Categories: East Asia, Hong Kong (China), Freedom of Speech, LGBTQ+

The Television and Entertainment licensing authority [1] issued a warning to Radio and Television Broadcast Hong Kong [2]regarding a TV program on homosexual love and marriage. The chief of Commerce, Industry and Technology Bureau immediately demanded to meet with the head of RTHK. Many citizens and netizens, including Mo at inmediahk.net (who had working experience in commerical radio company), believed that such act was to give pressure to RTHK and violated the freedom of speech principle (zh) [3].
