On September 6, the UK consul-general in Shanghai, Brian Davidson, made headlines when he married his same-sex American partner Scott Chang in Beijing. The first video containing footage of the wedding and solemnisation process is now on Youtube.
A friend made the following speech at the wedding, to the applause of smiling guests at the official residence of the UK’s ambassador to China, Sir Sebastian Wood:
