A Beijing court on Wednesday accepted a case requiring China's top media regulator to justify the listing of homosexual relations as "abnormal." The Beijing No. 1 Intermediate People's Court accepted the case on Wednesday and is expected to decide within six months, Tang Xiangqian, lawyer of the plaintiff Fan Chunlin, told the Global Times. Fan, 30, is demanding that China's State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television (SAPPRFT) clarify the legal or policy basis of the regulation, which lists principles for online content providers.
