  1. Yet more evidence of the need to cut public funding for universities running nonsense events.

    1. Never argue with an idiot, they will bring you down to their level where they are far more experienced.

    2. you do realise that universities mostly make money off their students in tuition fees, bars, clubs, shops, accommodation etc (fingers in a lot of pies) and then this money is used to buy and sell stocks and shares right?

    3. Can someone call the bridge keeper, they are missing a troll!

    4. If cut the funding to Universities how will we ever find the cure for your mental illness Jean?

  2. why has my post been removed which explained where university funding comes from? and yet uninformed rubbish is left?

    1. ok it seems to have come up again now, comments feed/my internet is playing up

      1. Next time you can’t see your comment refresh the page.

    Jean, don’t worry, the folks at Oxford have laid on something just for you and yours (http://www.pinknews.co.uk/2012/03/01/graduate-hands-back-oxford-degree-over-christian-concern-conference/). All the medieval-minded are welcome to attend. Those who can connect brain cells should stick with Manchester.

  4. Interesting to know that being gay in China is not that different to being gay in western world, hopefully with the time China will afford more rights to LGBT

  5. I hope China will do the right thing and give more rights to its gay and lesbian citizens.

  6. Many thanks to the University of Manchester for sponsoring this ground-breaking event.

    Let’s hear more about the GLBT scene in China.

    You cannot ignore China. It is home to 1/6 of the world’s population and probably enough LGBT people to populate the United Kingdom. The 36 years since Chairman Mao has seen a grossly overblown version of North Korea transform into an economic miracle. Human rights are still an issue but progress has been made, especially with regards to gay rights although it may be some time before we have marriage equality there. Who knows what the next 36 years will bring?

    1. I actually think being gay in china is safer than uk as there r nt many haters. Most Chinese esp straight guys may feel lil unconfy around gays bt they won’t be mean about it. But yeah not lots ppl would choose come out theyd rather keep it as a secrete mostly cos the family reason, as the older generation won’t understand.
