No Euro-Gays For China!
Chinese broadcaster Mango TV edited out the Irish and Albanian entries from the Eurovision Song Contest. Ireland’s entry, Together a love song by Ryan O’Shaughnessy (above), featured a male same-sex couple dancing.
Albania’s entrant, Eugent Bushpepa was cut from the broadcast because he has tattoos, which are banned on Chinese television.
Although China has no official anti-gay policy, it is censoring gay content. Call Me By Your Name was dropped without explanation from a recent film festival in Beijing.
