Abstract

This chapter provides an overview of how lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) youth in Hong Kong are subjected to various mechanisms of social control. Drawing on Kong et al.’s (2015) term ‘trinity of governance’, it explores how sexual morality, cultural traditions and religious conservatism shape the educational system and its institutions in Hong Kong. The lack of an inclusive sex education curriculum contributes to the stigmatisation of LGB youth. As a result, LGB youth have to explore and sustain their alternative sexuality expressions within limited spaces. With an increasing global awareness of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights, the notion of sexual citizenship has begun to gain a foothold in the wider Hong Kong society.
