Have you seen the new Chinese pro-gay video? The short clip is sweeping the country and so far the response has been overwhelmingly positive.

While homosexuality isn't illegal in China, many parents still have a hard time accepting their gay or lesbian children. As in America, those incidents are becoming more and more rare thanks to the brilliant folks at groups like PFLAG (which makes a cameo in the video). Who knew there was a Chinese PFLAG?!

The addition of real mothers of gay children at the end of the video may be the best part. As one mom says, "Don't give up. Your parents might not understand today, but maybe they will tomorrow."
