The Bahamas government has banned Brokeback Mountain from being shown in the country, sparking off protests by gay activists, libertarians, and other theatre owners.

The liaison officer for the Plays and Films Control Board said, "The board chose to ban it because it shows extreme homosexuality, nudity and profanity, and we feel that it has no value for the Bahamian public," contactmusic.com reported.

A theatre owner Philip Burrows said, "You have a group of people who are telling grown men and women what they can and cannot watch. I cannot understand denying people the right to make their own choices."
