Compared to Taiwan, Hong Kong is a little bit more conservative when it comes to the LGBT community and their rights. Its acceptance and tolerance of homosexuality only started just recently in the early 90s. And though the rise of LGBT representation and activism in the media has greatly influenced many Asian nations, Hong Kong is one of the few that has stuck with its conservative Chinese traditional values.
There is a gradual acceptance of members of the LGBT community. However, the majority of the population continue to be against same-sex marriage and a lot of transsexual individuals are still discriminated against in Hong Kong.
Many of the trans community often find that being socially accepted is still a challenge in Hong Kong with regards to family or the workplace. Though there are some activists who are fighting for equality, Hong Kong has yet to make significant changes for many of their trans citizens because of the presence of anti-LGBT groups which make it difficult for a lot of the members of the community to express themselves.
