WATCH: Chinese LGBT share coming out stories, live

Watch how Chinese LGBT non-profit workers go live online to advise confused parents and children.

Volunteers at China’s PFLAG (Parents, Families, and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) have been hosting live web talks since august to help educate people on HIV, sexual knowledge, sexual identity, expression and sexual orientation.

“We invite parents who have gay children to share their stories,” Flora, the head of volunteer management at PFLAG China, told TechNode. “They would talk about how they first reacted when their children came out to them and how they coped with it.”

PFLAG’s accounts on some live streaming platforms have once been suspended due to the “sensitive” online discussions during live streaming, according to Technode.

“We’d avoid saying highly sensitive terms like ‘tongxinglian (homosexuality, 同性恋 in Chinese)’ and instead say ‘tongzhi (slang for homosexuality, 同志 in Chinese)’ or ‘LGBT’ or ‘sexual minorities’ during live streaming,” said Flora. Watch some of the stories below:

I think times are changing slowly Internationaly and for my part as a Buddhist monk and Rinpoche I have tried to Teach the truth The Buddha never said "Gays cannot engage in sex" he only spoke particularly about cases such as pedophilia,using ones power or money to force another to have sex,manipulation of another to force that person to have sex,or having sex with anothers partner.I will be the first Buddhist Rinpoche to perform Same Sex Union Ceremonies.I have contacted The UNHCR to request a list of Asian countries that are ready to legalize LGBT Union Ceremonies and their human rights records regarding this issue. Also I think its important to educate youth about safe sex.Also that sex is not necesasarily love.And the use of alcohol and or drugs causes people to make in wise choices regarding safe sex.
