Chinese Flight Attendant Trainees Pose Topless in Honour of Chinese Singer Yao BeinaPosted: 01/22/2015 11:00 am
Last week’s death of popular Chinese singer, Yao Beina, saw the release of secret photos taken during her last moments in the hospital and immediately following her death.
In an effort to properly honour Yao, who was just 34 years-old when she succumbed to complications related to breast cancer, the students of the Chengdu Dongxin Airline Attendant Academy held a memorial in the singer’s honour.
The stewardesses-in-training mounted a breast cancer awareness campaign by agreeing to be photographed topless in a classroom and on a plane, or a stage that looks like a plane. A few of the photos feature airline attendants carrying signs promoting women’s health.
A second year student of the Airline Attendant Academy, Ao Min, explained the campaign:
As a student, this was our first time being photographed naked, something I was a bit embarrassed about. We hope that these photographs demonstrate to women that being healthy is beautiful. We hope that more of our sisters educate themselves about health related issues, and remain vigilant in the fight against breast cancer.
Here are more photographs from the campaign, as well as from the memorial the students held in honour of Yao:
