During protests in China for the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia, gay activists were arrested and questioned. Gay Star News reports:
Officers detained about a dozen LGBT advocates who were handing flyers about IDAHO in a busy mall in downtown Guangzhu, yesterday (17 May) afternoon. According to Yang Dai, a local activist, the advocates were taken away for questioning and released about an hour later. Dai added the police was not critical of the event; rather, officers were concerned about the method of handing-out flyers. And in Changsha, capital city of Hunan province, a Pride march drew over 100 China-wide participants aged 16-54, but some were detained.
While some of the activists were released, some are reportedly still being detained.
