China bans same-sex depictions
As part of a wider censorship drive under the new president (from 2012), China has now banned any depiction of same-sex relationships as 'abnormal' (on a list with incest and assault).
This marks a reversal of the liberalising direction of Chinese media and society over the previous decade, with homosexuality finally de-listed as an illness in China in 2001.
