Graduate comes out at graduation ceremony

The legalization of gay marriage nationwide in the US has deeply encouraged LGBT groups around world seeking expanded rights.

A graduate at Sun Yat-sen University came out of the closet during commencement on Saturday in Guangdong province, claiming her identity as a lesbian to the president of the university.

The graduate politely asked the university president, "Would you make a gesture of support for sexual minorities?" and the president made the gesture and hugged her.

She also posted on Weibo, appealing for equal rights among people of different identities.

Up next: a 50 yuan banknote could prove to be a cash bonanza.
