Accepting the Real and Dancing in the Closet is a 15-minute research project focused on homosexual population in China from 2015 to 2016. It is based on Chinese culture and the acceptance level of sexual orientation in China where 70% of the 70 million gay population feel pressured to hide in a fake relationship. This was a very personal experience as it provided me the strength I needed to come out to my family and friends in China.
