Sexuality Merdeka

Seksualiti Merdeka is an annual sexuality rights festival held in Kuala Lumpur. It features talks, forums, workshops, art, theatre, music & films, organised by a coalition of Malaysian NGOs & individuals. Merdeka is Malaysia’s Independence Day, so Seksualiti Merdeka means “Sexuality Independence”. (from Sexuality Merdeka facebook page which you can see it here.)

With ‘WE ARE FAMILY!” as this year’s shout-out, Sexuality Merdeka will focus on family related matters in LGBT community. The festival will run from 13-17 October at the Annexe Gallery, Kuala Lumpur. Check out their events line-up as follow or check out their general event page here.
