Party coming up next month, organised by Rainbow Nite and theKLword. It’s a pride party for everyone, and also a pre-Mini O party (the Mini O party is 14th August, a week after KL Pride). The Mini O is a party that leaves an impression, so this associated party could be a blast too:
KLPRIDE 2009 — A Pre-Merdeka/Pre-Mini O Splashbash
As you all know PRIDE is all about celebrating our sexualities and diversity and showing the world, or at least ourselves, that we are proud of who we are. PRIDE month globally is June which also commemorates the Stonewall riots. PRIDE, at it’s roots, is a political event, a protest, to highlight LGBTIQ rights and to commemorate all those who have fought for this cause…
Expect loads of games to get you wet, specially designed door gifts including a limited edition KLPRIDE 2009 t- shirt while dancing on the the poolside roof top deck as the sun goes down to the sounds of sexy house, RNB and your favourite retro hits.
Pre-Sales – RM50 (comes with limited edition t shirt and one drink)
At the door -RM60

[ Update notes: Flyer wording changed slightly; added introduction from KL Word, and omitted part of the invite from Facebook event group as it no longer reflects the inclusive feel the organisers want for the party ]

For those who missed the screening of the short film, Article 8, about the LGBTIQ community in Kuala Lumpur, head on over and check it out.
Above is a screencap of Article 8 (click image to go to the page).
A short film about the LGBTIQ community in KL which featured the likes of Shannon Shah, Juelie Koh and Lainie Yeoh and a few other activists and/or movers and shakers in the community here. The film was shot and edited in two weeks with the intention to submit it for the Yogyakarta LGBT Human Rights Festival next week. First screened at Lil Ladyfest, KL, Article 8 was also a response to the Fatwa against Tomboys.
taken from Article 8

Produced and directed by Thilaga Sulathireh and Elaine Foster.
Edited by Azreen Madzlan.
A few Tilted World contributors are featured in this video (either through the Malaysiakini newsclip, or interviews), don’t know how many you’ll recognise :P. Also some friends from Food not Bombs KL, and my colleague at The Nut Graph, Shanon Shah.
Shanon and I both missed the launch of this film, so it’s nice to see what it looks like, wasn’t sure it would be put on the internet.
So, watch the film, let me know what you think of the issues discussed — answer the questions here if you’re so inclined, would like to hear your opinions too.
