Singapore gives approval for gay couple to perform

Posted by jtsmyth8 on November 22, 2007

In a rare move, Singapore has given approval for an American gay couple to perform next month as part of a concert to raise awareness of HIV/Aids. The Los Angeles-based Christian gay couple Jason and deMarco were barred in 2005 from performing in the city-state.

But the Media Development Authority (MDA) said it had approved a concert this time because organisers had given assurances that they aimed to highlight the HIV/Aids issue.

‘In 2005, a similar concert featuring the pop duo was disallowed because the concert was open to general members of the public,’ the MDA’s deputy director for arts and licensing, Amy Tsang, said in a statement on Thursday. (story)
