Is This the New Malaysia We Voted For? LGBT Activist Asks after Picture Removed from Exhibition

Activist Nisha Ayub has demanded that the Pakatan Harapan (PH) government state its stand on the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community after her portrait with a Malaysian flag draped on her was removed from the Stripes and Strokes exhibition here. She said she expected it to happen but when news of the removal was published in Malay Mail today, it made her emotional thinking about the future of the “New Malaysia”. “I was not at all angry nor worried when they removed the pictures but it’s the message that is being spread to the public and to all marginalised community in Malaysia that saddens me,” she said in a Facebook post. “As a citizen of Malaysia, I want to know the stand of our New Malaysia towards minorities like us,” she demanded.
