Isaac Davidson at NZ Herald reports:
David Do, who is New Zealand-born and of Chinese-Vietnamese descent, told a parliamentary select committee it was widely – and falsely – assumed that European New Zealanders supported gay marriage while Asian and Pacific communities opposed it.
He said there were many people within immigrant families who wanted to support gay marriage but could not speak out.
“My perspective here is as a young, gay, Asian man,” he told the committee.
“I still cannot be fully honest with who I am with my family. I still have not told my Dad, who I love very much, that I am gay. I do not want to break his heart.”
Unless his Dad doesn’t read the Herald and has no friends who read the Herald, then I suspect that problem may now have been solved!Tags: same sex marriage
