Chinese gay rights activists out to challenge censored cut of Freddie Mercury movie Bohemian Rhapsody

Yanzi, founder of the Guangzhou-based LGBT Rights Advocacy of China group, this week asked Chinese film-goers what they thought about the censored version of Bohemian Rhapsody, the Hollywood movie about singer Freddie Mercury. The Oscar-winning film arrived in Chinese cinemas on Friday, but 10 scenes and four minutes involving drug use and gay content were removed. “I think film-goers deserve to see a complete artwork,” Yanzi said. “Furthermore, I wanted to get to know the audience’s opinion; could they really not accept a movie with gay content?”
