Some lawmakers objected to the hosting of Gay Games in Hong Kong, saying it will divide society and promote same-sex marriage.

Priscilla Leung Mei-fun from the Business and Professionals Alliance for Hong Kong said the Olympics unites society, while the Gay Games tears it apart. 

Independent lawmaker Junius Ho Kwan-yiu went further, saying the games is “a wolf in sheep’s skin.” He also questioned if foreigners would make use of it to promote problematic causes and bring “chaos,” and even endanger national security. 

Their comments came as Hong Kong gears up preparations to host the Gay Games next November – the first city in Asia to organize the games.
