The first ever Mr. Gay China Competition! An event to show off the fashionable and sunny side of gayness to Chinese society! A contest filled with hot body guys! The announcement of the first ever Mr. Gay China Pageant sent flaming ripples throughout the gay community.
The excitement was soon gone however when the event was cancelled just hours before it was supposed to start. Suddenly, the perspectives of the gay movement went from sunny to bleak – the cancellation meant a blow to all queers on the mainland.
