A gay couple's lawsuit is the first test for same-sex marriage in China

I love this NYT photo of Sun Wenlin and Hu Mingliang. They have summoned the same simple courage as countless other gay folk all over the world in standing up for their love. They inspire others, and the struggle grows and spreads.
