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.

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 . 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.
