Homophobia among younger generations in China is on the decrease – many post-80s and post-90s generation even think that being gay is cool and a unique way to rebel and to express individuality, but homosexuality is still generally unacceptable among older generations. A lot of the times, to come out means breaking parents’ hearts and bringing shame to the entire family.

For example, a recent China Daily report estimated that there may be as many as 16 million women on the Chinese mainland who are married to homosexual men due to social as well as family pressure on homosexual men.  As one 27-year-old gay man mentioned in the article, he did not want a heterosexual marriage, but may be forced into it one day because he did not want to hurt the feelings of his parents.

Nevertheless, there are always people who are willing to take and stand and make a statement. A few gay couples in Guangzhou recently put on a public kissing show in the hope of calling attention to LGBT rights.

China Pride: “Support gay marriage. Love bravely and respect LGBT population.”
