Surfer Becomes First Openly Gay Athlete in China

Xu Jingsen has become China’s first openly gay athlete after he came out on Weibo.

He wrote: “Hello everyone! I am A Sam. I will attend the global Gay Games in Paris, France, in August this year and serve as an ambassador. Coming out is the ultimate measure of our inner courage. Yes, I am gay. We have the right to choose who to love and how to be loved. Gender, age, and skin color are not an embarrassment. We all live under the same sun. Today, I bravely live my truth, and I regard it as the best gift bestowed upon me. If my courage can bring comfort to those who feel lonely and helpless, and encourage everyone to support equality, then everything I do will make more sense. Thank you friends!”

Congrats Xu!

The Gay Games will take place this year in Paris from August 4-12.
