In a series of crackdowns that included big tech firms, entertainment stars, business magnets, China is now targeting the LGBTQ community. Fabien Baussart, writing in The Times of Israel said that China’s communist government is coming down heavily on the LGBTQ community, initiating measures to keep them under constant surveillance in a university and instructing broadcasters to stop using “effeminate men” in television programmes in order to promote “revolutionary culture”. In a country where there is no legal recognition of same-sex relationships or marriage, the attempt of the Chinese Communist Party to gain control over the country’s education, culture and entertainment is ending up interfering in people’s private lives.
