A series of adverts urging people to be more accepting of gay people has launched in China.
The ad series, titled Love is not a Choice, launched on social media in the country, and is aimed at breaking China’s strong cultural taboo surrounding homosexuality.
The ads feature gay couples in their homes, and read: "Love is not a choice. We did not choose to be homosexual. We just are. Happily, the world is big enough for all of us".
Homosexuality has been legal in China since 1997, but same-sex couples lack legal recognition and are not afforded basic rights.
