Chinese Court In First Ruling of Its Kind Rejects Same-Sex Marriage
A court in China yesterday ruled that same-sex marriages are not legal. As reported by the New York Times, this is the first case of its kind adjudicated in China. In a decision handed down a few hours after the hearing, the court upheld a decision by the civil affairs bureau in Changsha, Hunan Province, to deny Sun Wenlin and Hu Mingliang a marriage license. The two men plan an appeal.
