本周除Free talk 外的话题讨论：
Apple CEO Tim Cook is much less known than the company's legendary founder Steve Jobs, but he was in the spotlight in China in the last few days when he wrote a piece in the Bloomberg Businessweek on Oct 30 publicly announcing his homosexuality.
While Cook being a gay is no news, he has never proclaimed publicly. In the article, Cook explained his struggle, quoting Martin Luther King Jr's words: "Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'". He also believes the issue is one of human rights and equality.The most quoted line from his article is: "I'm proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me."
Though homosexuality is still highly controversial in China, the overall attitude towards gays and lesbians has become more tolerant in Chinese society, more and more homosexuals displayed such courage in admitting that he/she is not "straight".
so, what is your opinion of homosexuality ? Do you think this is normal or kinds of disease ? Do you even support same-sex marriage should be legalized in China ?
Come to share your opinion with us ! This Saturday night, Haizhu Square !
