Give them time.
2015-05-21 15:48 @ Gay men’s wives torture...
Old traditions die hard. Give them some more time , I am sure these social taboo will slowly fade away. Parental pressures are very strong. And being the only child makes it even harder to resist. I know of friends who are gay and they plan to eventually get married and have a child and then they think their job is done. Then they will get on with their gay lives. It's unfortunate but it's happening. On the harder hand , I have seen gay guys who are effeminate and yet they can get a spouse to get married. So I am not sure who is causing the problem here. I know it's not right to judge but we hope we can eradicate all the pain , agony , frustration and sorrow as we move along.

I wonder where Vietnam and Philippines figure in this report?

I am an American living in Thailand. In the US I knew several Gay men who married women. I was also encouraged to do that. But I felt it was not a good idea. Many of these Gay men find that after they reach their forties or fifties (my opinion only), their Gay side erupts, and they will leave the woman. This is very unfortunate. It is far better to acknowledge yourself and stay away from straight marriage. Gayness is in our genes, and our genes dictate. In my opinion those who do marry women will find, sooner, rather than later, that their Gay side will dominate, and it may create many difficulties for the Gay married man. In America my married Gay friends were both Caucasian and Asian. In Asia it is extremely difficult for the Gay Asian man to resist the demands of his parents and other family members. It is a tragedy in the becoming.

A far better way of achieving equality.

"Same-sex relations were legalized way back in 1880 in Japan" This is new and interesting to me. One step at a time. I'm sure as time goes by, with more ppl coming out, things will be easier. "52.4% oppose".... Which simply means if just another 3.4% of population open up and be willing to accept, we will take the lead :) If just asian leaders are willing to accept, Asia will be leap and bounds in this department.

About 45.7%? That's quite an accurate figure. This can only be of people surveyed and the article also states that awareness of lgbt is already low. Large percentages of small samples really shouldn't be cited as evidence of anything. Teaching kids to be gay isn't a good idea.

I prefer not to reveal my gay identity to co workers. That's right, put me in the self hater box. Lol

Unfortunately, from what I see, most South Koreans are never going to be willing to open up about their preference to other South Koreans, because of the stigma LGBT face in South Korea for one reason or another. I actually had a straight Korean "friend" a couple years ago who admitted to avoiding me after a while because I let slip that I was dating a guy at the time.

Don't get me wrong, I don't oppose to people practicing their religion. I am also a Buddhist. However, I think all religions should be made private, strictly private practice! If everyone can ensure strictly private practice for their religion, the World can be a much more peaceful and safer place to live...

101% agree with nashboroguy...especially on 'With the lack of religion intolerance to block the way, LBGT people will be more accepted here.' The greatest reason for slow progress of social development in Asia (or anywhere else in the World) is because of religions! Hopefully this Asian dream can be fulfilled during my life time!
2015-05-10 16:05 @ China holds history makin...
Wow! Well done Shanghai. Hopefully the rest of China will catch on. I have just been fired from my work for being gay :(
2015-05-09 22:05 @ China holds history makin...
That is one of the first questions I ask a gay man interested in meeting me...Are you married? I also have this debate with Chinese men all the tie about HAVING to marry someone. My argument is this...so, you will marry a woman that you do not love just for the satisfaction of your parents? You will have sex with her, even though it is not pleasing to you, and eventually her? You will have a child that you may or may not want to raise with a woman? And, you are willing to sacrifice your entire life's happiness just to please your parents and fulfill some old tradition that is rapidly dying out? Sadly, most of them say yes. As for the violence, I think that stems from two things. One factor is that Chinese men in marriages, regardless of their orientation, can be quite abusive tom women. It is part of the culture. And, the second factor is that it has to be very frustrating to live a lie all your life and being unhappy what you can not love as your heart desires. So, they lash out in frustration of their own developments. As China becomes more and more accepting of LGBT people in society, this will fade away, as many of their old traditions are. And, hopefully, that day will come sooner than later.

This is great. I really think China will surpass America in LGBT issues in the near future. With the lack of religion intolerance to block the way, LGBT people will be more accepted here. It will take a generation or two to get the traditional older generation to die off who still hold to the old ways. But, many of them are becoming educated on what a homosexual truly is and that it is not a mental illness or something to be shunned in society for.

Yes, India really needs more general understanding and education regarding same sex relationships. It was a joy when holidaying in Goa and Kerala in February to see young men walking one with arm around the other or hand in hand often. But this is a sign of good friendship rather than declaration of being gay. It would be good it they kissed occasionally too . . . I went to a Hindu / Christian ashram but didn't find any teaching of same sex relationships in the Hindu tradition. There are many Chrisitans in Kerala and although Christianity has opposed same sex relations, Jesus never condemned it, but focused on loving care for the other. I hope India can become more broadminded about relationships and discover there need not be guilt with homosexuality, but enjoy EQUALITY ! John in Dorset UK. john-888@ntlworld.com

I don't see how profiler "edsmale" above understood Mr. GHK's comments to be racist. He explained that Chinese are more traditional (= conservative) in their values and therefore there exists a lack of candidates who want to publically compete. I'm sure if there were more Chinese contestants it might have been possible for one of them to win! :-)
2015-03-07 15:58 @ Interview with Mass Lucia...
Excellent article. Enjoyed the "Shake It Off" video immensely and the joining together with previous winners. Can you an the other Mr. Gay HK winners do more vids like that, please? Perhaps it will become an annual tradition - the concept is amazing. ;)
2015-03-05 14:08 @ Interview with Mass Lucia...
"I know that I am not Chinese and therefore my experience of LGBT life in Hong Kong is different. I think until more local people are ready to step in it doesn’t mean that we should just shelve it." Really? There are ZERO hot local Asian guys in H O N G fucking K O N G who are active in the community? I call bullshit. This is simply another racist beauty contest that say white men are hotter then Asian. BS.

GT that was totally uncalled for. It's sad when a hater is part of our community. Congrats and best wishes to them!

There is more than one way to be a man. I agree. This video seems to suggest that there are very few ways to be a gay man however. An opportunity missed I think.

Bizarre indeed! I guess something got lost in translation but the message still gets across, which is the main thing. Marvellous - from the L.O.S (the Land Of smiles), where I now live. Well done Thailand for actually producing this ad. Can't imagine a lot of other countries being this bold, mine included - the UK that is!

Well I think it is great that the young people are showing their true "colors" and being themselves instead of hiding and allowing countries to make it their "dark little secret". It takes the young to make change. Long life Love!
