Malaysian LGBT Arts Festival Organizers Challenge Government


malaysia flag



There's a lot going on in Malaysia! LGBT activists decided to file a lawsuit following the prohibition of a LGBT arts festival (see our article: Malaysian Police Ordered To Cancel A LGBT Arts Festival).

The organizers of the festival think this prohibition is unconstitutional. They added in a declaration that attempts "to prevent us from expressing ourselves are irrefutable evidence of the discrimination" against gays and transsexuals.

As often in this kind of case, religious organizations complained and pushed the police to prohibit this "Sexual Independence" festival.

On his side the Attorney General thinks that, on the contrary, rights advocated by the festival were not recognized by the Constitution but were instead "contrary to law and public order" as reporter Washington Post.

The Court will hear the arguments of each one on February 21st.
