    On Tuesday's Backchat, LGBTQ communities in Hong Kong; and bus fares.


    17th May was the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia.

    According to a recent CUHK survey 76% of local transgender respondents say they have faced rejection in different dimensions of social life, with 62% experiencing
    victimisation.  What is the situation like for the LGBTQ communities in Hong Kong? Are feminists like JK Rowling who are concerned about preserving safe spaces for women, and who are sceptical about too easy gender recognition plans, transphobic?


    From 9:15am-9:30am, we'll be discussing bus fares. Four bus operators were allowed to raise fares this year. But one company says it is still making massive losses and is likely to seek another fare increase. What do you think about it?

    The 12 HK fugitives

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Nixie Lam

    On Thursday’s Backchat, the 12 HK fugitives.

    Ten Hong Kongers who were accused of illegally crossing into mainland waters during an alleged bid to flee to Taiwan in August have been given prison terms in Shenzhen from three to seven months .

    Meanwhile, the youngest two were handed over to Hong Kong police on Wednesday because they were minors when they committed the offence.

    Families of the twelve were not allowed to visit in the past few months and there was little access to the lawyers appointed for them.

    What do you make of the trial process, the verdict and the sentence? What are the implications?
