A 63-year-old Chinese woman has become a global icon for parents of gay children all over China – and thanks to a CNN story, the entire globe, too.
The woman the Chinese gay community has taken to calling “Mama Wu,” is a outspoken supporter of her son, a 30-year-old gay rights advocate. Mama Wu learned to use a computer at 60 and now publishes a blog read by thousands of people daily. She founded that nation’s first PFLAG chapter, and quotes Harvey Milk.
