A pub owner in China who organised gay performances has been sentenced to five months in prison and fined 5,000 yuan ($783).

The Huangpu district people’s court jailed Wang Bing for pornography, the Shanghai Daily reported.

The 47-year-old owns a pub in the downtown area and is also a marketing director of a local arts venue. When he opened his pub, it failed to do good business, and he tried to organise gay performances to woo customers.

Wang invited Xiao Hui, a bar dancer, to perform at his pub. But police raided the pub on neighbours’ complaints.

Wang pleaded guilty and was later jailed. The gay performer’s fate couldn’t be known.
