Another story about changing attitudes to gays in China

Universities in China are now holding classes to help their students thnk about their attitudes towards homosexuality. What to me is just as remarkable as the fact that such courses, however ill-balanced thet may at times appear (by seeming to equate homosexuality with HIV/AIDS), is that this article appears in the Taipei Times - relations between the mainland and the 'rebel' island used to be glacial, now there are major links (not at an official level, of course!) between the two, driven by all sorts of factors, from investment to family ties.
