Over a million netizens have been watching Jason and Da Chuan travel home for Spring Festival in a live feed named "Bring him back home: this time, he and he decided to be braver.“
The couple are one of six couples featured on a live feed which started on Monday and is hosted by news site 163.com.
According to the site, neither has come out to their parents so they were both under a lot of pressure.
Da Chuan said that he cares most about his parents' opinion, and will suffer a lot if they are disappointed.
Coming out to parents is the most difficult step for gay people, Christina, an employee from a Beijing-based NGO, told the Global Times on Monday, explaining that many parents are still taking homosexuality as a disease and do "terrible things" to "cure" their kids.
