PR marketing logic just fails me.... absolutely fails me. Doesn't matter what country, some ideas these marketing companies come up with are just ridiculous.

I don't see anything wrong with the publicity gimmick- perhaps, campy but not sleazy. The police crackdown was unnecessary, but then this is China...the Chinese government, that is.

Is the store BAILING them out of JAIL now ? No way I would consider doing that in THAT country.

The only reason I can imagine for the overwhelming police response is that the police were terrified of these guys. Truly pathetic.

Well, they look pretty hot to me. Odd there would probably have been no problem with such an event here in Tokyo. Or maybe, actually, nobody would notice.

Did they get the LGBT parade date wrong?

@Swiss Toni Oh yeah, now I get it. Sparta was the Greek province where the men fought great battles with their soldier lover at their side.

They should've shouted ''THIS.. IS...BEIJING!'' Anyhows, what kind of a response would you expect from an oppressive militaristic state, where the slightest deviation from governmental control is quashed. I guess you can't have half naked parades because it goes against socialist dogma. Meanwhile, corruption and prostitution flourish.
