Hong Kong singer Denise Ho declared that she is gay, during a gay pride parade in Hong Kong on Saturday, reported Hong Kong media.
Ho is the first mainstream female singer in Hong Kong to have come out of the closet.
“I am a ‘comrade’ (A Chinese slang word for “gay”)!” said Ho, whose sexual orientation has long been the subject of speculation.
“For many years, when I faced questions from the media, I always felt that sexual orientation is a personal matter, that there is no need to label yourself.
“But in 2012, I find that there is still discrimination, prejudice and one-sided opinions in society, so I feel that silence is no longer an option,” explained Ho, who drew thunderous applause from the crowd with her address.
Of note in the latest Gallup survey, released Thursday, is the fact that non-whites are more likely to identify themselves as LGBT than whites, which challenges common belief that large numbers of the community are white, male and wealthy.
The Gallup poll showed that 4.6% of African-Americans identify as LGBT along with 4% of Latinos and 4.3% of Asian-Americans. Only 3.2% of white Americans say they are LGBT.
More women - 3.6% - identified as LGBT than men - 3.3%. That means 53% of the LGBT community are women.”
mmmmm, a beautiful ocean of white, thin, ciscentric, reductionist, cliche, safe blandness, I feel like puking aaaaaallll up in it.
whoever made this should feel bad. Very bad.
Well butch is meant to describe white women anyways. PoC have their own word anyway. I never think of butch as describing anything but white people. Femme and Hard femme though…
you know already know that once it hits midnight on the east coast, you gon’ see some skin diamond.
“Well its based on the reversal of self-denial.”
“I’ve never heard of that, what’s the reversal of self-denial?”
“It’s like if you… if you deny yourself something long enough… for whatever self-imposed reason, you know, the moment you are faced with any real external imposition you’re going to voluntarily want to do the thing that you were trying so hard not to do.”
