Ming Jue, a 31-year-old teacher in Qing­dao, Shan­dong

Prov­ince, re­cently ap­plied for ar­bi­tra­tion af­ter he was dis­missed by the kinder­garten he was work­ing at.

Ac­cord­ing to Ming, he was fired af­ter he re­vealed to his stu­dents' par­ents that he is ho­mo­sex­ual. “I told my stu­dents to be hon­est, so I can't lie. I am ho­mo­sex­ual,” read a sign Ming held while stand­ing in front of the lo­cal la­bor ar­bi­tra­tion bureau. A great many ne­ti­zens have posted their sup­port for Ming, call­ing for equal­ity for peo­ple who have dif­fer­ent sex­ual ori­en­ta­tions. Ming's lawyer said that China's cur­rent la­bor law does not go into de­tail about work­place dis­crim­i­na­tion, but he be­lieves the bureau will find the dis­missal as un­rea­son­able as he did.
