Fudan University in Shanghai is launching China's first undergraduate gay-studies course in September, China Daily reported Aug. 16.

It will examine gay social, legal and health issues, said sociology professor Sun Zhongxin, who will oversee the class.

The initial 100 slots for the course filled quickly and more will be added to accommodate several hundred interested students, Sun said.

The course is being funded by Hong Kong's Chi Heng Foundation, which sponsors AIDS and antidiscrimination projects.
