I'm sorry, but the ******* 'anti' gay law is NOT what a lot of people think it is. it's not good, ill admit, but to compare it to the nazis and jews is fuking unbeleivable

I think this picture is from Beijing, not this year.

Fair enough. That may well be the case, however none of the comments are any less relevant, and the nazi comparison was made by a couple of prominent british celebrities in media outlets.
It is still a reasonable conclusion to come to, that this picture is relating to current events rather then Beijing.

Thanks for letting us know the truth of the image though, always good to have sources. Thumb for ya

it's not so much the law as the fact that the authorities don't seem to care when people go round gay bashing and torturing them in videos online

I would like to poin out thatthis is a TINY minority of people. true, there are a lot of people who are homophobic in the country, can';t deny that. But the channel 4 TV show it seems, has blown out of proportion the number of people going about beating up gays.

I havent seen the programme myself but have heard a lot about it, and one person said that the police haven't done anything. this is a lie. 3 men where sentenced to prison penal colonies and labour camps this year (or maybe before new years) for beating a man up for being gay.

I'ts not ntriuthful information being spread, but it is being represented in an untruthful way, which eventually will hinder more then help the situation, in my opinion.

When was the last time you heard about gays being executed in saudi arabia merely for being homosexual, cos that has happened this year already. India this year passed a law that banned gay sex and puts any gay person in prison fof 14 years.
Neither of tese things have hit the news.

Soz rant. TL;DR - gay bashing in ews/tv is misrepresented

ahhh that makes a lot more sense!!
Usually I pride myself in getting the full story but it seems here I let personal feelings overshadow logic - thank you for pointing this out
(if that sounded sarcastic in any way I didn't mean it to be)
