Hong Kong public housing ban on married gay couples unlawful, says court

A Hong Kong court ruled that married same-sex couples have the right to apply for public housing, overturning a government ban it said was unconstitutional. The case was brought by Hong Kong resident Nick Infinger, who married his partner in Canada, and applied for public housing. They were rejected by the authorities under the ’ordinary family’ category because they are not husband and wife.

It's not like it's real marriage but people shouldn't be turned away from basic necessities such as housing.
