Media Censorship and “Queerness” in China

This paper aims to delve into the concept of “queerness” within the context of gender and its specific manifestations in China. The focus is to explore the ways in which “queerness” is expressed and dealt with in Chinese society, and how it challenges the traditional gender norms and identities. The paper also examines the ways in which the Chinese government exercises censorship over gender and sexuality through social media and mainstream media. It explores the reasons behind relatively stricter enforcements in the case of gay relationships as compared to lesbian ones and how this has changed in recent times. It further explores the role of COVID-19 in accelerating these restrictions and regulations. In order to provide a detailed overview of the subject, the research incorporates a variety of journalistic articles and academic publications by Chinese and Non-Chinese authors
