Hong Kong Court Favors Gay Couple In Landmark Victory For LGBTQ Rights

According to the HuffPost, Hong Kong’s top court on Thursday ruled in favor of a gay civil servant fighting for spousal and tax benefits for his husband, in the latest legal victory over equal rights for same-sex couples in a city where gay marriage is banned.

The court said while the protection of the institution of marriage as defined by Hong Kong’s laws is a “legitimate aim,” the government “failed to justify the differential treatment” which amounted to discrimination.
