The Department of Museums Malaysia (JMM) has cancelled the renting out of the National Museum’s auditorium for an event this Saturday after discovering that it would feature alleged lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) “icons” from Thailand. JMM said they had received an application on May 31 from the event organiser for a programme called “Thailand Fans: Together in Kuala Lumpur” where fans would meet Thailand artistes. The department reportedly said the organiser had not informed it of the names of artists that would be involved in the event, and had only found out last Saturday from event posters that went viral on social media under the event name of “Kissing Krist and Singto”.
