There is no official data on homosexuality in China, the world’s most populous country, however academics estimate that China now has about 40 million homosexuals.The number means that two to three or more people are willing to choose the same-sex partner for every 100 hundred Chinese.This is a huge group of people that can not be ignored.A survey by a Chinese gay (“Tongzhi” in Chinese) website created a list of the top 10 gayest cities in China and a short description of gay populations in each city.But the venue canceled the booking, citing conflicting events, the group said.It is not illegal to be gay in China but LGBT activists say deeply conservative attitudes toward homosexuality in some sections of society have led to occasional government clamp-downs.(Speak Out did successfully host an event in Xi’an in 2015).
The city has the most gay bars, organizations, and various activities in China. Shanghai The density of gays in Shanghai is not the highest among these 10 cities, but Shanghai has quite a large population and thus it owns many gays too. Chengdu The number of gays in Chengdu is no less than that of Shanghai.
