From the article as posted in the Guardian.
” A Beijing court has ruled in favour of a gay man in a case against a “gay-straight conversion” clinic, an unprecedented legal judgment in a country where most people consider homosexuality deeply taboo.Yang Teng, 30, brought the case against the Xinyu Piaoxiang clinic in the south-western city of Chongqing, which allegedly told him it could “cure” him of his homosexuality through a series of treatments involving hypnosis and electric shocks.

The court ruled that such treatments were illegal, and demanded that the clinic give Yang 3,500 yuan (£359) in compensation and post an apology to its website.
