Hong Kong granted the spousal visa for British lesbian

Hong Kong top court ruled that a British lesbian should be granted a spousal visa as she is a part of same-sex marriage that wants to move to the Chinese city.

“Although I cannot be with you in person today, that does not diminish the joy I feel, knowing that Hong Kong’s highest court has upheld my right, as a lesbian woman, to be treated equally by the Hong Kong government,” QT said.

“I won’t feel like a second citizen anymore and I can have the basic rights like anyone else, from as simple as having a library card to having healthcare,” she added.

LGBT Orchestra

Birmingham Gay Symphony Orchestra is the Midland’s LGBT orchestra that promotes musical talent directly from within the LGBT community.

“I have met some of my dearest and best friends through BGSO – people I would never have met any other way,” says Kat Galbraith, 45. “I really missed playing and particularly performing orchestra music with other people,” she recalls. “I got in touch and haven’t looked back.”

Although the orchestra is not exclusively for people who identify as LGBT, “Having somewhere to socialise away from the LGBT scene is very important to me: somewhere where I can meet like minded people, with a shared interest, without the worry of judgement and additional expectations or pressures.”

First trans woman crowned Miss Universe

Scarlett Johansson criticised for taking on trans role

Re-teaming with the Ghost in the Shell director Rupert Sanders, Scarlett Johansson is set to star in a feature called Rub & Tug, about the true-life story of Jean Marie Gill, who was assigned female at birth but who assumed the identity of a man, Dante “Tex” Gill, and operated a massage parlor and prostitution business in Pittsburgh in the 1970s and ’80s.

When news of the project broke this week, many began to criticize Johansson, a cisgender woman, for choosing to play a transgender man, arguing that the role should have gone to a transgender actor.
