The Winter Olympics aren’t the only contest this weekend: The Worldwide Mr. Gay contest is happening in Norway, and The New York Times looks at the Chinese contestant, Xiao Dai, a Muslim from the Western province of Xinjiang. China made news when it canceled the Mr. Gay China pageant, which was supposed to happen in January. Still, three pageant organizers and eight contestants got together and voted to send Xiao. China decriminalized homosexuality in 1997, but the government still regularly blocks gay events.
