BEIJING: A court has accepted China's first same-sex marriage case, lodged by a gay man against a civil affairs bureau for denying him the right to marry, in a decision hailed as a step forward for gay rights.
While homosexuality is not illegal in China, and large cities have thriving gay scenes, same-sex marriage is not legal and same-sex couples have no legal protections
Sun Wenlin, 26, told Reuters a court in Changsha, the capital of Hunan province, had accepted his lawsuit on Tuesday.
"I think from a legal point of view, we should be successful," Sun said.
"Our marriage law says there is the freedom to marry and gender equality. These words can be applied to same-sex marriage."
Sun said he had filed the lawsuit in December because he wanted to form a family unit with his 36-year-old partner.
This is a better way of population control than the one child policy.
