Singapore: Music video banned for its pro-LGBT content

Singapore: Music video banned for its pro-LGBT content

According to Global Voices and Focus Taiwan, the Taiwanese pop songstress Jolin Tsai’s song and her musicvideo ‘We’re All Different, Yet The Same’ has been banned from broadcast in Singapore. The Singapore government’s Media Development Authority has confirmed that it advised local broadcasters in Singapore not to air the music video because of ‘mature content’. Singapore’s Media Development Authority has reportedly sent notices to television and radio stations in the city-state informing them that the song and music video should not be aired. According to reports, this was because the lyrics encourage marriage equality for same-sex couples, which is in conflict with local laws. The music video is about a lesbian couple who has been living together for three decades. Sources: www.globalvoicesonline.org and www.focustaiwan.tw
