So far, 2009 has been a great year for the queer community in China. Thousands of people gaped at the beautiful female and male couples getting married in Qianmen, the first Chinese Art Exhibit on Gender Diversity was a successful creative forum for a wild bunch of queer artists, the 4th Beijing Queer Film Festival for the first time showcased queer talent from greater China as filmmakers from Taiwan and Hong Kong also joined in the feast and the Shanghai Pride caught the attention of both foreign and domestic media.

The China comrades are stepping up! And they’re catching headlines not only with their activities in the home country, but also with their achievements in the outside world.

For the first time, there was a Chinese delegation present at the Outgames, which were held August this year in Copenhagen, Denmark. Although the Chinese delegation counted less than 10 people, they managed to win 1 gold and 1 bronze medal. It was reason enough for the Chinese mainstream media to start a nation-wide debate on whether a ‘gay gold medal’ should count as a gold medal or not.
Duh! Gay gold glitters the most! In this episode of Queer Comrades we’ll show you how shiny it all was at the Copenhagen Outgames and we’ll take you straight to the most exciting sporting and party events. We have a ton of behind-the-scenes footage, highlighting not only the gay medalists but also LGBT-pioneers like former NBA-player John Amaechi and the first female couple to enter a same-sex partnership registration.
So join us in a celebration of the 2009 Outgames theme ‘Love of freedom, freedom to love’ and give a cheer for all those contemporary queer champions!
