No Euro-Gays For China!

DNA Magazine - - MONTH IN A MINUTE -

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.
