Starhub is pro-glbt??

Caitlin Fua, StarHub’s Corporate Communications Manager responded: ‘We are disappointed with MDA’s decision to impose the penalty.’

From Straits Times Online

Did anybody see that on TV? For the benefit of Singaporeans overseas, the video was uploaded on youtube. Was it really on TV??? Omg, there were so many kissing scenes. It was so obvious it is a lesbian couple.

    hey thanks for this youtube link.. now i understood why Starhub was slapped with a fine.. Just 2 kissing scenes are “too many”? hehe.. well it makes sense especially when it was being shown on “conservative” Singapore TV.. kudos for starhub for being daring! Starhub will be loved by LGBT community.

  2. It was only shown on cable tv (need subscription) not even national TV. What the big hoo-ha…

  3. Not too shocking that a fine was levied for that scene, but at least the networks in Singapore are starting to push the envelope.
