Chinese broadcasting regulator releases guidelines banning LGBT depictions
  • China’s top broadcasting regulator and an industry trade group released the guidelines, which, though not technically law, have appeared as authorities have censored and removed LGBT-friendly online and offline programming.
  • The guidelines forbid the depiction of “abnormal sexual relationships and behaviors,” which include “incest, same-sex relationships, sexual perversion, sexual assault, sexual abuse, sexual violence, and so on.”
  • Diverse representation has been further inhibited by China’s recent ban on foreign-owned media operators from publishing online content in the country.
