Society should understand us: China’s first gay couple

Beijing, Jan 26 (Calcutta Tube) All they want is more understanding from society, say China’s first gay couple who got `married’ Jan 3.

Zeng Anquan and Pan Wenjie ‘fell in love at first sight’ when they met at a bar in Sichuan province’s capital Chengdu city, Beijing News reported Tuesday.

Zeng, 46, has a daughter from a 26-year marriage while Pan, 27, confessed to his parents that he is more into men.

‘I don’t feel well when I am with a woman, but I could not speak about it in the past. When Pan planned a surprise wedding for me, I was shocked at first but on second thought said ‘Why not’,’ Zeng was quoted as saying.

But Zeng said publicity about their marriage was creating new pressures for the couple, China Daily said.

‘Every day, a dozen of people watch us where we live. It’s inconvenient and awkward for us,’ he said.

‘We go on TV shows and interviews, and all we want is more understanding from society. I want more gay people to say, ‘This is how we live and it’s not wrong’.’
