Manly matters

By Raymond Zhou, China Daily, February 16, 2013

Raymond Zhou’s column, X-Ray, looks at the brouhaha over a homosexual nudge in this year’s CCTV Spring Festival Gala. Zhou discusses one of the most talked-about occurrences during the Spring Festival Gala, in which Louis Liu made reference to an alleged homosexual relationship between pianist Yundi Li and Leehom Wang. Zhou points out that, despite the fact that the comment was excluded from later broadcasts, the lighthearted tone with which the comment was made, and received by the public, indicated changing attitudes about homosexuality.
