Marco Wan on Same-sex Marriage in the Context of Hong Kong (JP Morgan Webinar)

Marco Wan spoke on the timely and important issue of same-sex marriage at a recent webinar at the Hong Kong office of the US investment bank JP Morgan on 24 June 2020. His presentation gave an update of the recent cases in Hong Kong, including QT, Leung Chun KwongInfinger, and MK, and also explored international developments. The talk further explored Hong Kong's marriage history as a way of thinking about the twenty-first century debate about marriage equality; this part of the talk drew on his forthcoming article entitled "The Invention of Tradition: Same-sex Marriage and its Discontents in Hong Kong". The talk concluded by noting the need not only to focus on marriage, but on other issues central to sexual minority rights such as employment discrimination.
