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”.

Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.

Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.

Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
