To better understand Chinese students' perspectives toward their gay and lesbian peers, interviews were conducted in a Chinese university. The participants did not believe that gay and lesbian people fit into Chinese society; however, they are becoming more open and tolerant on gay and lesbian issues in recent years because of the influence of technological innovation, media, and Western culture. The findings suggest a degree of acceptance of gays and lesbians though the participants simultaneously distanced themselves from their homosexual peers. They perceived the university to be a safe place for gay and lesbian students in the sense that nobody would hurt them, but they did not see the university as a welcoming place. The interview transcripts were analyzed within a Chinese cultural and social context. Offering a realistic picture of heterosexual students' perspectives might encourage them to reduce discrimination against their gay and lesbian peers, and to create a better learning environment for both heterosexual and homosexual students.
