Queer censorship rules

By Steven | May 29, 2009

Noticed that you can’t find Queer as Folk at your local video shop? Actually, you can’t find any of these titles either. As Andrew Armitage explains, it’s because it’s too expensive to get them classified. Even if they’ve been on TV. Even if you could order them through Amazon.com. Even if they’ve been in the movie theatres (particularly if the DVD has extra material on it).

Our classification regime is unwieldy and unfair. It’s especially harsh on film-lovers with niche tastes. It’s also hurtling towards obscolecence as media formats converge. It’s about time the government yanked it into this century.

    Hey if regulators can’t keep up and still insist on silly censorship rules…
