Gay Guide China - Macau

The general age of consent for homosexual sex, as well as heterosexual, is 14 years. Homosexuality in Macau is legal. There are no law specifically preventing homosexual interactions. There are anti-discrimination protection based on sexual orientation in the fields of labour relations (article 6/2 of Law 7/2008). Macau is a 50 kilometers west of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China. It was a Portuguese colony until 1999. Macao is rich in sights from colonial times. The main income is the legal gambling and the related tourism from Hong Kong and Mainland China, which names of the East or Monte Carlo Las Vegas of the East for Macao justified. The territory of the present SAR originally consisted of three islands. With land reclamation Taipa and Coloane islands are connected to the mainland and Macau. There is very little gay life in Macau. Most locals prefer to go out in Hong Kong. The ferry between Macau and Hong Kong takes roughly one hour and runs daily from 7-24h. An unseen gambling boom ignited a construction boom in Macau with casinos everywhere. The most pretentious one is the Grand Lisboa. This huge golden kitschy building dominates the sky line of Macau.
