Sun Wenlin and Hu Mingliang are the first gay couple in China to have their same-sex marriage lawsuit accepted by a Chinese court. They connected online in 2014. They met. They knew. “It was love at first sight,” said Sun. “He was lonely, I was lonely, so we got together,” said Hu. A year and a half after later, they are very much still together. And now their love story may become a legal landmark.
