Stop Gay Cures in China

"I was electro-shocked at a gay ‘cure’ center in China. Doctors hypnotized me and said they would ‘shock the gay’ out of me.

In families like mine, being gay is still seen as something that can be cured, and scam clinics prey on that fear. Now, I want my friends, my family and everyone in China to understand that being gay is normal.

If we get the World Health Organization (WHO) to join in and speak out against gay ‘cures’, it could create a perfect storm.It could help convince officials to finally ban these dangerous gay ‘cures.’

Will you sign my petition asking WHO Director Dr. Margaret Chan to speak up now and condemn gay ‘cures’ in China?” - Xiao Zhen

Posted on 21 August 2014 - This petition is hosted by All Out on behalf of Xiao Zhen with the support of Queer Comrades and the Beijing LGBT Center.



An abandoned junkyard dog walks 4 miles to the other side of town every day where she goes to get fed by a woman named Lucia. One day Lilica grabbed the plastic bag she was fed in, and ran. Food spilling everywhere. 

Lucia decided to follow her and see what was going on. She discovered that Lilica was saving the food to share with her starving friends at the junkyard. Now Lucia ties the bag for Lilica. Some things are worth being explained.


Just because somebody has a sunny disposition does not mean there is not a terrible darkness eating away at them from within, concealing itself cunningly behind a brave face, a loud voice or a magnetic personality to escape undetected. Be vigilant, find depression where it lurks, and bring it to light.
