Acceptance eludes China's gays

Being homosexual has long been legal, but attitude to same-sex partnership has been slow to change.

    Homosexuality was removed as a crime in 1997 and taken off the list of mental illness in 2001. The pressure to marry and produce male offspring, however, remains huge.
