A 30-year-old man is on trial for rape after he allegedly lured a lesbian to have sex with him while pretending to be a woman.

Tsang Tsz-ho, 30, is on trial in High Court today (Mon) as he appeared in front of a jury of six men and a woman.

Prosecution said Tsang got to know the victim on lesbian dating platforms Butterfly and Her. He called himself “Jan” and said he was a tomboy.

Tsang knew the victim wanted to engage in sadomasochism, and arranged to meet her on February 27, 2020 to a Kwun Tong hotel.

The victim found out Tsang is a man during sex and questioned him. She repeatedly pushed him away.

She also asked him: “I don't understand. Why do you go after lesbians?” But Tsang did not answer.

Prosecution said Tsang should know the victim wanted to leave immediately, and that she only promised to have sex because she thought Tsang was a woman.

The victim called the police on the night of incident. Prosecution alleged that Tsang knew full well that she was a lesbian but hid his own sex.

The victim will testify in court via video.
