Chengdu - Post Report Question and Answers

Is this a good city for LGBT expatriates? Why or why not?

I don't know. The Chinese government is not very welcoming of LGBT people, but Chinese people in general seem very welcoming and friendly. But I don't think dating would be easy. - May 2016

Chengdu was once known as a haven for China's gay scene, I believe. Not sure if that's still true. There certainly aren't Pride parades down the main avenue, but we did occasionally see same-sex couples holding hands around the university area. - Aug 2013

There is a scene and it works. It is pretty quiet, though. - May 2013
