UAE banned film on same sex relationship

UAE: 16 June 2022: The United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Monday banned Walt Disney-Pixar's animated feature film Lightyear from screening in cinemas because it features characters in a same-sex relationship.
The film would not be licensed for screening in the country as it violated the nation's media content standard, the Ministry of Youth and Culture's media regulatory office wrote on Twitter.
Lightyear, which had been advertised by cinemas in the UAE for release on June 16, is centred around the Buzz Lightyear action figure character from the popular Toy Story franchise.
