“The government is trying to control what people can say, this is starting to be like China”

The changes happening in Hong Kong are slow and silent. Since the city became part of China again in 1997, Josh cannot listen to the police station and, unlike private companies, the public wi-fi provided by the government blocks those pages that contain the word “gay” even if there is no sexual content in them, unlike private companies.

Josh as a homosexual feels very insecure about what could happen in the future. Step by step things are changing in the city and he fears that the censorship from China will arrive, where citizens are not permitted to use social media such as Facebook, Twitter and Youtube.
