City state Singapore have sanctioned Vogue by shortening their publishing permit and delivered a “stern warning” for publishing content which contains nudity and promoting “non-traditional families.”
“Depictions of seminude models with breasts and/or genitals covered by hands, materials and objects” is banned in Singapore, which also has a zero-tolerance approach to promoting or glorifying “alternative lifestyles.”
Singapore’s Ministry of Communications and Information confirmed on Friday that it has issued the local edition of Vogue “a stern warning and shortened” its publishing permit.
“It had breached the Content Guidelines for Local Lifestyle Magazines on four occasions within the past two years, for nudity and content that promoted non-traditional families,” it said in a statement. The statement did not go into specifics of which rules were broken.
The statement did say that Vogue Singapore’s one-year permit was “revoked” on Thursday and that “Vogue Singapore has reapplied, and MCI has since issued [them] a six-month permit.”
A permit is required for any outlet who wishes to publish content in Singapore.
