TAIPEI, Taiwan — A Taiwanese LGBT publisher has been forced by organizers to stop


selling several books at a major expo in Hong Kong.

G Books (基本書坊) said in a Facebook post that it was ordered to pull nine titles from its stall at the Hong Kong Book Fair, as the Hong Kong Free Press reported.

Event organizers cited a regulation prohibiting the sale of Class II “indecent” books under Hong Kong’s Control of Obscene and Indecent Articles Ordinance.

The order came despite all of the books being sealed and carrying warning labels — and despite the covers containing no explicit material.

For instance, the cover of “A Gentleman’s Wedding” (男大當婚) shows only two grooms hugging.    [FULL  STORY]
