Denise Ho rallies for same-sex marriage

Denise Ho, who recently came out of the closet and announced that she is gay, made an appearance at Hong Kong's annual 1 July protest march, supporting the efforts of LGBT rights, Singtao website reported.

Speaking on behalf of Big Love Alliance coalition that was also co-founded by Denise together with singer Anthony Wong and other prominent activists within the entertainment industry, Denise stated, "I have always talked about requesting equal rights for gay people. Frankly speaking, we hope to be given all the usual benefits an average person would enjoy. We hope to have the same marriage and medical rights."

Denise also stated that all of the demands and requests have been printed on their flyers this time around, and together with her co-founders handed out all the copies at the Big Love Alliance booth despite heavy rain and strong winds.

Meanwhile, Anthony also spoke of same-sex marriage at the event, saying, "Although this effort may not see its success overnight, we are on the right path. The U.S. Supreme Court recently ruled that it is unlawful to ban same-sex marriage and it shows that the world is finally stepping towards true equality."
