Gay dating and chinese men
It definitely wasn’t illegal and most people had a ‘if it’s not my business, I don’t care’ attitude.
My wife fell pregnant first and if people were shocked when they found it, they hid it well. This may be because most of the Chinese people I work with are at least somewhat westernised or it may be due to Chinese culture and not wanting to lose face or cause me any embarrassment.
Grindr founder and CEO Joel Simkhai described the investment as “a huge vote of confidence in our vision to connect gay men to even more of the world around them,” but stressed that it would be “business as usual” despite the influx of capital.
Simkhai and Grindr’s employees retain the remaining shares in the company, and expect that the alliance will allow the service — which has become the de facto hook-up app for gay men — to expand into new areas.
If you’re looking for a city with a very large gay nightlife then maybe Beijing isn’t the place for you.
If you’re wanting to come to Beijing to explore the many beautiful sites or to study Chinese but you’re worried being gay will be a problem, don’t be. I’m a happily married lesbian from the UK who has been blessed with two gorgeous sons.
The deal will also allow Beijing Kunlun Tech to expand its own reach outside of China.

We decided to start for a second baby straight away, knowing it can take a long time to get pregnant by insemination. ’ and it doesn’t always feel acceptable to answer ‘we both are’, especially when there are police or officials or Chinese doctors involved.
It turns out I’m extremely fertile and our second son Byron was born in Beijing just 11 months after Ezra. It’s not that anybody had a problem with our sons or was disgusted with us for choosing to have a family, everybody was really wonderful. Firstly, my wife wasn’t able to be on the birth certificate. We are both on my eldest son’s birth certificate as he was born in the UK.
No matter what complication arises, everything is ultimately solvable and there is no reason big enough to not come here and take in everything this amazing culture has to offer.
The biggest difficulties by far are bureaucratic, so if you’re planning on getting married to your partner or having a child as a gay couple in China, it could be hard work.
Explaining what a sperm bank was to the Chinese police was extremely uncomfortable and being told that without permission from the father, Byron wouldn’t be issued a visa and therefore, be able to leave the country, left me in tears.
