"Coming Home" - Chinese short film encouraging families to talk about homosexuality goes viral

On the eve of Chinese New Year, "Coming Home", a Chinese short film tells the story of a young gay man who feels pressured by his parents to be attracted to women, coming out to them as gay, and the parents' coming to terms with revelation.

In the credits, mothers urge children "Don't think of the love of your parents as a burden," "Share the story of your life with your parents," and "Be brave and be yourself." One mother urges other parents "Don't allow social convention and traditional views of marriage to get in the way of your kid coming home."

The video has gone viral in China, with over 100 million views.
