Vogue Singapore penalized for nudity

(AFP) — Authorities have shortened Vogue Singapore’s publishing permit, issuing a “stern warning” to the fashion magazine for its content containing nudity and promoting “non-traditional families.”

Singapore has strict policies restricting LGBTQ content within the city-state’s publications, with lifestyle magazines being banned from promoting or glamorizing “alternative lifestyles.”

Nudity — including “depictions of semi-nude models with breasts and/or genitals covered by hands, materials and objects” — is also prohibited.

Women’s magazine Cleo and men’s magazine Singapore FHM were also penalized for content on “sex, nudity and the promotion of promiscuity and permissive lifestyle” in 2008 and 1998, respectively.
