FROM THE WEB: ‘LGBTs In China Are Priming A Pink Economy That Will Overtake America’s’


China is now estimated to be the world’s third largest LGBT market after Europe and the US, worth around £300bn.

And despite the significant difference in the social acceptance of LGBT issues between the US and China, China’s LGBT market is already a third of the size of America’s, with a massive untapped population.

“China also has the world’s second largest economy overall after the United States. The Chinese LGBT community numbers at least 70 million people , according to China Daily.”
