These are the 18 best pictures from the Hong Kong Pride parade

Hong Kong unravelled its rainbow flags Saturday to celebrate Pride and to keep up the fight for full equality.

Cardinal John Tong’s comments on Thursday, where he said the ‘traditional’ family were ‘challenged’ by the gay movement, have put LGBTI issues back in the spotlight.

But more than anything else it seemed marchers were out to celebrate how far we’ve come.

‘I think Hong Kong is making enormous progress,’ one of the marchers, Mark Green, told AFP.

And it was clear to see from the photos below.
