So Much for the Mr. Gay China Pageant: Police Shut It Down

And here we were, all excited for some hot Chinese guys to strut their stuff in the first ever Mr. Gay China pageant, and along come the authorities to shut down the entire thing — just an hour before the show was supposed to go on.

It’s not that Chinese officials had a problem with the gay nature of the show, they claim, but rather organizers didn’t go through the proper channels to secure a permit to put on such a show. Uh huh. That’s sort of the police’s way of saying, This is too risque!

By not allowing the competition, you might suspect it means China will have nobody to send to Oslo next month for the Worldwide Mr. Gay pageant. But you’d be wrong! Somehow, organizers still plan to pick a winner (private swimwear competitions?) to compete on the world stage. Well, if he can get a passport outta there.

UPDATE: Organizers have reneged on the decision to send a competitor to the international Mr. Gay, though they’re not explaining why.

    Here is a thought. Seeing how they did not go through the “proper” channels and get the “proper” permits why not contact their Chinese counterparts in Taiwan and ask them if they would mind holding a Mr. Gay China so the Chinese can be represented. Or does Taiwan already send their own representative to it?

    I mean no offense to no one and do apologize for not knowing in the hope someone does know. I think Chinese bodybuilding boys have some of the cutest butts to offer in the gay world and must be represented on that stage for the world to see. To see thier bodies I mean. And since you all know babies come from heaven too so I will leave you now.

    Yet one more example of homosexual discrimination and oppression.

    And another good reason why we “choose” the homosexual lifestyle, so that we can be abused and dumped on.

    Makes perfectly good sense.

    To the homophobes, that is!
