The High Court in Hong Kong immediately repealed four offenses criminalizing gay male sex after finding them unconstitutional on Thursday (30 May).

Justices reviewed seven offenses total, all part of the Crime Ordinance, and kept three intact after formally revising them. They ultimately found the four offenses discriminatory, as they punished gay and bisexual men for acts that are legal for heterosexual adults and lesbians and bisexual women.
