First public gay wedding in China’s Fujian province

Lu Zhong and Liu Wangqiang married this week in a ceremony in Fujian that brought out an estimated 1,000 onlookers.

The write-up of the wedding from Gay Star News is kind of odd, but it suggests that they were threatened by “ruffians with clubs” even during the celebration.

They had also faced official impediments to holding their wedding, the couple said. ‘Government officials exerted pressure on different hotels, while the Public Security Bureau went about in karaoke boxes telling people to seize us,’ Lu said. ‘They even sent ruffians to look for us.’
