Q: Are there many openly gay Chinese men throughout China?

I'm curious to know because while I was in Korea, so sometimes I couldn't tell the differences because the habits of many straight men and gay men were similar, which I do think that there were many down low (secret) gay men of the Korean culture, yet they were afraid to openly admit it due to possible rejection from their culture.

I wonder if it's the same in China.

Yes, there are many gays in China, but yet not open. May be one of your close friend, comes up being a gay.

Its because gays afraid if then open reality of what they are, they may be rejected from society they belong to.

I would say, yes, a lot openly gay...
My classmate back to college works for a British company, he told me there r 7 guys in the office, and except him, the other 6 r gay, everyone knows it, they admit it...
The world is getting crazier...

I think about 70% of the boys in my graduate school here are gay.

And if you get off your high horses and venture out of the expat areas you can actually find a lot of hanging out places for openly gays in Beijing. The food court at Xidan is one example.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
