Gays resist police harassment in Chinese park

Some 100 gay men in Guangzhou, China, stood their ground in People’s Park on Aug. 25 when police tried to evict them, China Daily said.

Activist Ah Qiang said park guards tried to push the men out of the park, they resisted, police came, the gays continued to resist, and the police finally left.

A police spokesman told the newspaper that gays have committed robberies and thefts in the park but Qiang said gay men have in fact been the victims of park criminals.
