Transgender activists in Malaysia have launched an online campaign to combat state-sponsored transphobia. The video at its center features trans Malaysians speaking directly to the camera while reciting a poem about their treatment in daily life. One of the campaign’s organizers, Jellene Khoh of the group My Trans Ally, explained the campaign was launched to respond to anti-LGBT sentiments voiced by Malaysian political candidates.
