comments     Published     Updated

A video contest organised by the Health Ministry has come under criticism by transgender activist Nisha Ayub.

The contest, calls for the creation of a video on one of three topics, namely on sexual reproduction, cyber sex and gender dysphoria.

Nisha took offence with the third topic, gender dysphoria. Contest guidelines had supplied examples of issues for the topic such as “gay”, “lesbian”, “transgender”, and “tomboy”, but added that the video must outline the “issue and its consequences”.
