A 22-year-old student of Sun Yat-sen University who announced that she was gay during graduation has gained the support of the university’s president and classmates. Wan Qing said the announcement during which she sported a rainbow flag was an impromptu and natural expression. Although her Weibo account has since increased its fanbase by over 5000, Wan Qing still hasn’t informed her non-web-savvy parents. She said that if the worst comes to worst and they oppose her, she will leave home. Although many netizens didn’t oppose homosexuals, they also couldn’t fathom abandoning one’s parents.
