When a gay husband is better than none: "Xiao Qiong is what's known as a 'tongqi,' which translates as 'wife of a homosexual,' but she never uses that word in public. It is not an offensive term, but she would be humiliated if everyone knew, because getting married is more important than anything else in life. She had dreamed about her wedding day ever since she was a little girl, and she had had her perfect ceremony planned down to the last detail. It would be at the seaside, and instead of wearing a red qipao, the traditional one-piece Chinese bridal dress, she would be radiant in a white bridal gown with a long train, just like a princess or "the models in Vogue." In her fantasy she would take off her shoes and dance with her husband on the sand as the sun slowly set over the water. That had been her plan. Ever since she was little, she had done everything she could so that one day she would be that barefoot girl on the beach, her white veil fluttering in the breeze. In the end, reality turned out to be just the opposite."
