International Day Against Homophobia Rally 2008


Homophobia is a crime and over 300 peoples rallied in a busy street of Causeway bay in Hong Kong on May 18 to mark the International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHO). The rally was full of songs, story telling and even a “die-in” action to protest against homophobia and fight for equal rights for sexual minorities. The SO-U.TV team filmed the joyful protest.

Interestingly, these included several liberal religious bodies, amongst them the Blessed Minority Christian Fellowship, the Hong Kong Christian Institute and the Spiritual Seekers Society, who led the meeting at one point in singing and in testifying that many Christians support the struggle against discrimination based on gender.

A mall that supports artists, Delay No Mall

The G.O.D. boys Douglas Young and Ben Lau did it again. They turned Hong Kong upside down with the most outrageous party of the year. Bringing together a high energy group of hip hop ballers, fashionistas, the ultra chic underground, and of course, all the pretty boyz. Half naked models all around and if you felt like getting your own kit off a game of strip poker was wide open. 24 Herbs, the edgy cantonese hip hop band kept the crowd crazed while FINDS restaurant made sure endless cocktails flowed down the throats of the super fabs.

The mall was open recently and is going to expand itself to include sleep pods, bars and tattoo parlours. The controversy is that the phrase “Delay no mall” (or G.O.D.’s slogan, Delay no more) sounds similar to “F**K YOUR MOTHER” in Cantonese. That’s why the founders had to explain the name again and again in their videos. Do they intend to offend anyone? You decide.

Shoppers can find ‘Delay No Mall’ at 68 Yee Wo Street , next to the Regal Hotel.
