Mom Romantic comes from Handan, north China's Hebei province.
"My son first told me he was gay when he was in high school. I didn't know what to do then. I told him that I would love him no matter he was gay or not but I kept thinking that maybe I had taken medicine I wasn't supposed to take when I was pregnant with him. And I sort of counted on that maybe with the passage of time he would change, physically and psychologically," she said.
However, his son "came out" a second time in college and that was when she knew she had to taken in the fact.
After that, she found herself searching information, seeking experts' opinion and getting in contact with other homosexual people to learn more about the group.
"I was surprised that there are so many of them, and I decided to do something to help them get out of the shadows," she said.
Now she's become a flag bearer in advocating equal treatment for the gay group.
