China: Homosexuality remains illegal

Categories: East Asia, Hong Kong (China), Law, LGBTQ+

Although having been delisted as a mental disorder in 1997, homosexuality [1], says law intern-Chinablawger Kevin Fisher posting on a police crackdown in Beijing last year, remains illegal in China [1].

“Is it my right to believe homosexuality is wrong?” Fisher asks. “Certainly. But, so long as homosexual acts do not demonstratably harm others, I do not believe it is my right to force others to stop it. Nor do I believe that a government has that right.”
