"My sister warned me she would never call me her brother unless I break up with Pan, and I have answered hundreds of phone calls from friends and relatives who say they feel ashamed of me. But we are deeply in love and will never desert each other."

-- Zeng Anquan, who married his partner, Pan Wenjie, in China's first gay wedding. The Chinese state press covered the marriage.
