The Time is Now to kiss

by Xin Yi

On 1-April, 2017, it was the romantic season of sakura in my alma mater, Tongji University. I went back to the campus with my boyfriend, borrowed graduation gowns, and did something we did not dare to do those years: kissing under the cherry tree.


Second Prize – 531 votes

The Time is Now o go outside

The photo was taken on 5-April, 2017 at the peak of the mountain. We are a group of gay people, who enjoy the company of each other and nature.


Third Prize – 365 votes

The Time is Now no more homowife

by Allen Chao

It is estimated that 16 million women in China are married to homosexual men, 70 percent of which suffered long-term abuse in their relationships – mainly due to their husbands’ lack of sexual interest in them – while 20 percent suffered repeated domestic violence.
