TAIPEI, Taiwan — A senior official at the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) calls on
Taiwan’s LGBTI community to be strong and love themselves and shares his own coming out story in a recently released video.
“I would say (to Taiwan’s gay community) to be strong and to love yourself because no one else will do that for you,” Jason Chue (楚杰生), deputy head of the AIT’s Kaohsiung branch, said in the short film, released earlier this week by GagaTai, a Taiwan-based gay culture website.
Sharing his coming out story, Chue, who is openly gay, says he always knew he was homosexual, even as a young man in elementary school. But it was not until high school that he came out to himself, his friends and family, he says. [FULL STORY]
