The legalization of gay marriage nationwide in the US has deeply encouraged LGBT groups around world seeking expanded rights.

A graduate at Sun Yat-sen University came out of the closet during commencement on Saturday in Guangdong province, claiming her identity as a lesbian to the president of the university.

The graduate politely asked the university president, "Would you make a gesture of support for sexual minorities?" and the president made the gesture and hugged her.

She also posted on Weibo, appealing for equal rights among people of different identities.
