First Major Gay Rights Event Opens in China Today!

Gay Pride now extends to China for the first time! The first large-scale event outside of Hong Kong opened in Shanghai today- Shanghai Pride 2009!

Sodomy was decriminalized in China in 1997. Gay nightlife exists in major cities quite openly, and attitudes are changing But this is a huge step- I am frankly amazed that it is tolerated so openly by the Chinese government.
