Around 6,500 people attended a Pride rally in Hong Kong on Saturday, after police on Thursday rejected LGBT groups' request for a march.
Police allowed the event on condition it took form of a public meeting and not a march, Hong Kong Pride Parade said.
«Democracy and freedom actually is related to [the] gay circle,» said demonstrator Mr. King. «I have to come here to remind all the gay people... Еще if you want to fight for your freedom, for your democracy, also stand with Hong Kong. And don't forget the five demands, not one less.»
Hong Kong has been rocked by protests sparked by a now-withdrawn extradition bill since the end of march. The rallies later evolved into a wider movement against the government, marked by months of clashes between protesters and the authorities.
