Mother of a gay son
The 80-minute long documentary is directed by Fan Popo is a Chinese independent film maker, writer and activist; with the support of PFLAG China, Queer Comrades, China Queer Independent Films, Beijing Gender Health Education Institute.
The film's synopsis reads: "For Chinese parents, finding out that their kid is gay usually presents a major tragedy, with the big majority utterly unable to accept the homosexuality of their son or daughter. However, during recent years a fresh rainbow wind has been blowing over the Chinese mainland: a pioneer generation of Chinese parents has been stepping up and speaking out on their love for their gay kids. This documentary features 6 mothers from all over China, who talk openly and freely about their experiences with their homosexual children. With their love, they are giving a whole new definition to Chinese-style family bonds.
Rainbow Mama had its world premiere at the Hong Kong Lesbian and Gay Film Festival last November and has since been screened at the Boston LGBT Film Festival, Frameline San Francisco International LGBT Film Festival, OUTFEST Los Angeles LGBT Film Festival, Vancouver Queer Film Festival, Kashish Mumbai International Queer Film Festival and Taiwan International Ethnographic Film Festival.

But religions come from outside that always try to devide.
Religion is tool of imperialism toore the devide.
seperate/devide Children from their parents therefore parents would hate the children. It is immoral.
seperate friend to friend. that is immoral.
seperate nations and tribes. that is immoral.
Many people interested in "heaven" that offered by Religion using some kindness as cosmetic to attract follower.
Too much priest..no body will do kindness.
Priest are lazy to do kindness.
They are very busy to preach, no time to do kindness.
We should throw away any hollybooks from our nations
More similar movies should be made and be screened proudly especially in Asia and South East Asia, to profess the 'rainbow' reality and dignity in humanity, especially in politically, socially and religiously conservative nations like Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei, Indochina, etc.
Bravo to the film maker, Fan Popo.
