Chinese
university approves first LGBT campus group in the country

In Zhuhai, the Sun Yat Sen University has allowed students to officially register an LGBT group on campus. This marks the first time a university in China has proactively nourished public interest in homosexual studies, reports BBC News. "They are a group of students who would like to study and learn more about gay and lesbian issues," said Chung To, an activist who is also director of a foundation that administers projects for children affected by AIDS in China. "I think the significance of the group mainly is that it is the first time the university officially approves the existence of such a group." Although homosexuality is looked down on in China, many informal LGBT groups exist on the Internet, where they are less subject to censorship. (The Advocate)
