Organizers of China first gay pageant say police forced them to cancel the event just one hour before it was to start.

The event organizer says he was told by police that the event could not take place because he had not applied to stage the event "according to procedures."

The Mr. Gay China pageant, featuring a fashion show and a host in drag, was set to take place in an upscale nightclub in Beijing.
