Tips of LGBT China Tours for Lesbian, Gay, Bisex, Transsex Travelers

Homosexuality is not an aberrant blip in Chinese history, since ancient records of 1700 years ago during the western Han Dynasty, (206 B.C. - 9 A.D.), nearly all the male emperors were recorded as had male lovers. In the ancient times, the attitude towards this was tolerant as long as men fulfilled their duty to marry a lady and carry on the family line.

China’s long literary tradition offers many elegant references to socially accepted gay and leibian relationships in the ruling classes. In modern China, the government decriminalized homosexuality in 1997 and it is not viewing as a form of metal illness in 2001.
