Equality brings fun for all
THOMAS CHANG tells how pop stars helped youths take the message home
Equal opportunities for all was the message belted out at a day of fun and music.
Pop stars joined forces with RTHK 2 and the Equal Opportunities Commission and youngsters took part in a variety of competitions at the Equal Opportunity and Anti- Discrimination Show at the International Trademart Centre, Kowloon Bay.
The event aimed to raise awareness of the importance of people being free from discrimination and enjoying equal opportunities regardless of gender, family status or disability.
Seven social service groups took part in competitions ranging from mime, singing and drama which emphasised the equality message.
'Hopefully, these events could lead to a better understanding of the importance of equal opportunity and the need to fight discrimination,' Gloria Lo, the event choreographer, said.
Canto-pop singers including Edmond Leung, Bondie Chiu, Chan Chin-pang, Lam Siu-cham, Joey Tang and the group Sisters also performed.
