For the first time in its 10 year history, the Hong Kong Pride Parade will feature a worship service and holy communion led by a LGBT inclusive church.
An estimated 12,000 attended the parade, according to South China Morning Post, but police say it was around 4,300. The march was followed by the worship service, led by Blessed Ministry Community Church and Covenant of the Rainbow, an LGBT friendly church coalition.
Jason Ho, a Covenant of the Rainbow representative, came to the march to show that some Christian are supportive of the LGBT community.
“Not all Christians are like that, that’s why the LGBT-inclusive and affirming groups of Christians must come out and balance [the conservative] voice – because their voice is not the only attitude, their voice is not the only voice of Christians,” Ho told South China Morning Post.
