‘The life of China’s gay and lesbian’ by Zhou Tianyang

Zhou from University of Sussex gave a presentation on the changing life of China’s gay and lesbian in last decades, especially with the advent of the Internet.  He discussed how traditional Chinese ideas and the attitude of Chinese government towards homosexuality influenced the life of China’s homosexual people. With the Internet, homosexual people started to express themselves and founded community, both online and offline.

He also shared some video clips made during his fieldwork in China, interviewing homosexual people.
