“We’re all different, yet the same”, is – according to GSN, “based on the true story of a lesbian couple who have been together for more than 30 years.”

The Straits Times, reported on Monday that there was no such ban. The Straits Times then quoted the unnamed spokesman as saying that the “MDA advised the local broadcasters that they should not air the song and music video on channels that are freely accessed by younger viewers due to its mature content.”


So ban from Radio and TV?

Why is it banned? Christian groups?

How many songs / shows are banned without anyone knowing (under private consultation)?

Why is it silently banned without anyone knowing?
