A joint statement by the Australian GLBTIQ Multicultural Council and the Queer Muslims in Australia

It is a sad fact that transgender people world over continue to suffer from persecution and discrimination, as is the case in Malaysia today. Although there has been progress in many parts of the world for the recognition and protection of rights for gay and lesbian people, the transgender community continue to report higher levels of abuse, harassment, vilification and bullying all over the globe. We call on the Government of Malaysia to respect the human rights of all its people and repeal discriminatory laws which have repeatedly targeted transgender citizens.
