上星期,法政匯思非常榮幸能邀得知名唱作人兼「大愛同盟」成員黃耀明到我們的每月聚會作嘉賓。黃耀明及其所屬的組合「達明一派」擅長於作品中表達社會議題。當晚他與一眾法政匯思成員員分享他從1986年出道以來的心路歷程,包括影響他的社會事件、「雨傘運動」前後藝人在內地表演的限制、個人公開「出櫃」的經歷以至對香港同志平權運動的看法。

當晚反應熱烈,我們的成員踴躍提問,而明哥亦詳盡解答。而法政匯思召集人吳宗鑾原來也是達明一派的粉絲。他把私人珍藏的唱片跟聽眾分享,為聚會生色不少。

Last week, we were most honoured to have Anthony Wong Yiu-Ming, renowned Canto-pop singer-songwriter and founding member of LGBT group BigLove Alliance, joining us at our monthly meeting. Anthony (better known as “Ming Gor”), as an individual performer and also as the lead vocalist of “Tat Ming Pair”, was best known for the messages in his music, which boldly touched upon the socio-political scene in Hong Kong before and after the 1997 sovereignty handover, and also for his participation in the Umbrella Movement. At the sharing, Ming Gor walked down with us his memory lane, especially the social events which inspired his music and political sensitivity, the parameter changes in music performance in mainland China before and after the Umbrella Movement, his personal account of his coming out as well as his views on the LGBT rights movement in Hong Kong.

The sharing was received with overwhelming response and Ming Gor heartily answered various questions from the floor, one after another. Meanwhile, our convenor Chris Ng, who has been an avid fan of Tat Ming pair since its inception in 1986, took the opportunity to show off his collection of Tat Ming / Ming Gor music records, which added so much fun to the guest sharing.
