The Information Department has banned shows featuring gay characters, Deputy Information, Communications and Culture Minister Datuk Maglin Dennis D'Cruz confirmed.
He said the ban was effective immediately but would only start with state-owned TV and radio stations.
"If it means cancelling some of the shows, so be it," he told The Star Friday, adding that the decision was to curb the "influence" of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community.
He also said the decision will be expanded to cover privately-owned stations as well as satellite TV providers

Lie low and the BN will do it themselves.
I am gonna stop blogging until all this kind of shit stops.
