Sexuality Merdeka 2011 - BANNED
I'm extremely upset on the ban. Its just doesn't make sense. It is not a freaking GAY PARADE!! Its an indoor.... mostly closed door event of celebrating and understanding a section of society that have been ridiculed, stigmatised, and oppressed for so long. And the little and i might say ONLY avenue that we have is also being prohibited.
I have been to some of the past year's activities and i found all of the activities line up are very engaging and informative. it made me understand who i am, and where i stand in society. It also teaches me to love and respect and furthermost accept the diversity and tolerate each other.
The program DOES NOT promote hatred and extremism. Unlike all of the political rallies that i have been to.
When you pressed a group of people. any group of people for that matter, and put all sort of discriminating and incriminating accusations to them, how can we say that we are a civilised society.
There's no effort of the authority of try to understand what the issue is all about before putting a banned to it. And that's what frustrates me the most.
All that i can see is that this is another political ploy taking place. Taking advantage of of certain issues, blew it out of proportion, let the media play on this. Suddenly all this Ahmad, Ah Seng and Muthu politicians have something to say about this. Thus gaining political mileage and revive their almost non-existent media coverage.
Hatred breed more hatred in the end. Let us persevere and prove to the general masses that we are a peace loving, colorful and fun society.
In the end i do believe LOVE will prevail!!
