For the third consecutive year, the European Union Office to Hong Kong and Macao will host a booth at the Hong Kong Book Fair. We will host activities such as a book reading by the Consuls General of the European Union, presentations about its Member States and the special participation of the EU Price of Literature winner Selja Ahava.
The booth is open from 17 to 23 of July at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre.
On the occasion of the International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, the European Union reiterates its unswerving commitment to promoting and protecting the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) persons.
Across the world, cultural, traditional or religious values continue to be used to justify persecution, discrimination, bullying and gross ill-treatment against LGBTI persons, often involving hate crimes and extreme forms of violence, including torture and murder.
