Although there is no law against
homosexuality in China it was once considered a mental disorder
by the government. In 2001 homosexuality was removed from the
People's Republic of China classification of mental disorders
and same sex relations have become tolerated and accepted as
long as they are not openly displayed. Tolerance towards gay
people is rising and being gay is fast becoming a way of living
in many urban areas. Gay establishments and meeting places are
emerging in almost every big city and consist of bars and discos
as well as restaurants. Many young gays also use the internet to
meet other gays and make new friends. This vast country with a
population of over 1.3 billion people has a safe and friendly
environment and will make any visitor feel at ease.
