Denise Ho: I am homosexual
Thousands attended the annual Hong Kong Pride Parade, celebrating lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) culture over the weekend. Hong Kong singers Wyman Wong, Anthony Wong and Denise Ho also attended the "Dare to Love" event at the Pride Parade on Saturday.
Denise, dressed in a boyish outfit that was accessorised with shades and her usual short hair, was accompanied by her parents.
Raising a rainbow flag (representing LGBT pride), Denise declared onstage, "I have always wanted to say this, but I don't really have a chance to do so. Today, I proudly announce that I am homosexual!"
Denise's public announcement immediately received wide support from netizens and fans, with many regarding her as a "brave warrior".
Wyman posted a group photo he took with Denise on his micro-blog and commented: "Proud of you, my friend!"
