New hotline offers help to gays – Liang Qiwen, Xiao Jiang

From China Daily (link):

The first national free hotline offering advice to gay people on a range of subjects has been launched.

Volunteers in Guangzhou and Shanghai have joined forces for the initiative, which will provide advice on psychological problems, legal issues and HIV/AIDS.

Hong Kong-based Chi Heng Foundation, which is sponsoring the service, has previously operated a localized hotline in Shanghai, to provide psychological and legal help, and another hotline in Guangzhou to support people with HIV/AIDS.

The new nationwide hotline, 800-988-1929, is manned for several hours every day by volunteers in the two cities. It was launched on Monday.
