Advisory: In April, 2001, homosexuality was deleted from the Chinese Classification of Mental Disorders. China has joined a growing number of Asian countries which have rejected outdated Western notions that homosexuality was a mental disorder. China and Japan both have many literary references to socially accepted homosexual traditions in their long histories.

Homosexuality is NOT illegal in China. Paying for sex IS. Do not pay for sex under any circumstances or you may be subject to blackmail or worse. Respect the law while you are a guest in China.

General Information

    Homosexuality is not an aberrant blip on the cultural radar of Chinese history. Ancient records mention queers as far back as the Shang Dynasty (that's 1,700 years before Christ ever said nothing about gay love). During the Western Han Dynasty (206 B.C. - 9 A.D.) nearly all Emperors were recorded as having had male lovers. The traditional attitude was generally tolerant as long as men fulfilled their filial duties to take a wife and produce heirs. Not until the Song dynasty did laws emerge to control popular male prostitution.

    Qing Dynasty conservative Confucians (17th century), buggery-obsessed British-colonial imperialists (18th century), and Mao with his catastrophic pogrom to annihilate Chinese cultural tradition (20th century), all failed to stamp out the human reality of same-sex love and gender diversity. A short-lived attempt to stifle the natural by adding homosexuality to the official list of diseases fizzled in April, 2001, when physicians updating the Chinese Classification of Mental Disorders pressed their collective undo button.

    China's long literary tradition offers many elegant references to socially accepted gay and lesbian relationships in the ruling classes. Indeed, some of those legendary romances are still referenced in contemporary language used to describe homosexuality. Alas, the lives and loves of common folk and women were rarely valued enough to be put into song, verse, or scholarly library, and so these listings offer a remarkable glimpse at the comtemporary everyday gay scene enjoyed by millions of comrade Utopians.

    With GLBT organizations, legal services, events and festivals around the country, and with the emerging power of the middle class, China's gay scene is blossoming.

      Comments from Utopians:

      "We found ChinaMango on Utopia. They were very friendly and answered all our questions and organised two tours. We met Jet first for a night tour of Beijing. He was very friendly and we first went to the Olympic Park by night. It was a very good idea (we never would have gone there otherwise). He showed us how to take the subway, what to do by night, where to go to take a drink and go out, good restaurants, gay night life, etc. Because of him our stay in Beijing was really fabulous! We also decided to go to the Great Wall. They proposed different options, explained the different possibilities, and we choose what we wanted. We went by car. All was very easy. Afterwards, he proposed to drive us to see modern parts of Beijing. Jet was more than a guide - like being with a friend who showed us his town!" -- Thomas and Yves, Mar 6, 2014

General Information

    Chongqing is a city built skyward on a hilly peninsula formed by the confluence of two rivers, one being the mighty Yangtze. Not much remains of central city's older areas. Progress has stripped away much of the charm and replaced it with generic concrete and steel towers.

    The population is over 31 million (that's more than 1.2 million Utopians), but for all its potential, the city retains a small-town conservatism and gays socialize on the down low. Still, there are a number of places listed here where you may enjoy a taste of local gay flavor.

Attractions

    • Ciqikou
        About a 20 minute cab ride from the CBD to the northeast side of Shapingba Dist. This ancient town was built in 998AD as a commercial harbor for the shipment of porcelain in the Ming and Qing Dynasties. This historic neighborhood has been preserved and transformed into a sort of theme park of traditional Chinese culture. Wandering the winding roads, amidst old shophouses and merchant buildings, are throngs of local and visiting Chinese and a few foreign tourists. A huge variety of arts, foods, crafts, clothes and entertainments give Ciqikou a permanent county fair feel. Candy makers sculpt hand-made lollypops of glass-like melted sugar in the shape of beasts from Chinese astrology; cotton candy is spun into wild shapes and colors; a home-made spook house beckons; and overlooking all sits the picturesque Po Lun Temple. 瓷器口
    • Shibati

        "I went to Tian Tan Bay on Oct 5 during the national holiday. At 8:30pm it was empty. Went back at 9:30pm and it was packed. It is a very loud bar - cannot have a converstaion at all. We left at midnight. The seating near the show stage has a minimum of Y$200 drinks per table. If you want a shared table, it is minimum Y$50 drinks per person. Most of the people are young men under 30. Very few over 50. Did see two lesbians. in the rest room two guys were touching each other. Otherwise, not many actions in there." -- bobchina8000, Oct 20, 2013

Visitors wanting a less adventurous option can go to any of the restaurants in the Metropolitan Plaza shopping center, attached to the Harbour Plaza Hotel, and point at the pictures on menus there. There are also a couple of very good street stalls serving hot noodle soup and dumplings in the alleyway that runs up the hill from the Red Cliff Cave towards the center of town.


Shops

    • Red Cliff Cave
        In the CBD, just five minutes walk from the clock tower. Not a cave at all, but rather a vertical shopping arcade hugging the face of the riverside cliff opposite the modern performing arts center on the other side of the river. It has a very good traditional food alley where you can taste freshly ground tofu, hand made yam noodles, mallet pounded sweets, or all sorts of local treats. Plus, a cruisy Starbucks up top next to a pirate ship! Arrrr. 洪崖洞

Guilin (Guangxi Province) -- area code (86-773)

General Information

    You'll be hard-pressed to find anything gay in this picturesque, provincial city popular with Chinese tourists. Yet, the amazing landscape of colossol limestone karsts and the lazy river ride through stunning landscapes on the way to Yangshuo should not be missed by ardent China travelers. Cheap flights in on Air Asia make this a useful entry port into southern China.

    Population is almost 1.5 million (that's about 60,000 Utopians, but where are they?).


Popular Spots

Attractions

    • Don't miss a "bamboo" boat ride to Yangshuo through one of China's most incredible landscapes. Take a bus or a taxi (about US$25) to the nearby village of Yangdi. Negotiate for a private boat (about US$40 for two people) for a 90 minute ride to the charming village of Xingping. After exploring the ancient streets and shops, catch a local bus to Yangshuo (about 40 minutes ride) and spend the afternoon wandering around this bustling town before catching a bus back to Guilin (about 90 minutes).

    • Guilin's limestone karsts are home to spectacular caves adjacent to scenic spots and guided tours are a typical tourist attraction here.

From Yanji Lu, walk down Dacheng Lu to the 3rd building on your right - a small, 2-storey industrial glass and steel building with three doors (roll-down industrial metal doors if closed). The sauna entrance is through the center door, up a short flight of stairs (no sign or number posted). Take your shoes off as you enter the lounge area. Get a locker key/lock, towel and a clip-on number as you pay at the reception desk in front of the huge fish tank. Put the clip on number onto your shoes and leave them on the floor (the staff will take them later). Walk down the stairs and pass a display case with sexy underwear and safety supplies. On the B/1 landing you will probably encounter some of their cute and queeny masseurs sitting in a small lounge area. There is also a hallway here with half a dozen dark, curtained rooms with blankets and futon which are free for patrons to use. Continue down the stairs to B/1. Here you will find a large bar and show area on one side and a hallway to the lockers on the other. At the end of the locker area is the wet area comprised of toilet, half a dozen showers (activate my sticking you finger into the small electronic sensor). The large Chinese lettering on the shower wall says "if the water is too cold, turn on all the showers at once to heat up." There is also a small dry sauna here that doubles as towel drying room. Not clean to a western standard, but friendly and unpretentious. Shows on Fri and Sat nights. Working class local customers.
