Shanghai to show pride with gay festival
BBC News, Shanghai
A week-long gay pride festival gets under way in Shanghai this weekend, the first time the city has held an event like it.
There will not be a parade. The organisers took legal advice which suggested that might get them into trouble with the authorities.
Instead, there will be film screenings, talks, an art exhibition and a large, all-day party at a privately-owned venue.
