Sing Tao Daily, Posted: Jul 09, 2009

SARATOGA, Calif.A Chinese mother has become a gay rights advocate after learning that her son is homosexual, reports the Sing Tao Daily.

Homosexuality remains to be a taboo in many Chinese families, but Alex Lius mother, Yu, accepted him with open arms after he came out of the closet. Liu said, over half of his college gay friends hid their sexual orientation from their families or felt rejected after telling the truth.

Saying they understood that sexual orientation natural and nothing to be ashamed of, Yu and her husband urged other Chinese parents to accept and communicate with their gay children and support them in gaining others acceptance. Yu will continue to fight for same sex marriage for her son and other gay couples, she told Sing Tao Daily.
