Shanghai, CHINA: Chinese men loiter in the bathroom of a large department store, which has become the latest hangout for Shanghai's emerging homosexual population, 30 May 2007. China has a gay population estimated in the tens of millions but homosexuality is still a largely taboo subject in the country due to a mix of traditional conservatism and communist prejudice against gays and it was listed as a mental disorder until 2001.
