A group of five members of LGBT non-profit organisation Diversity attended the May Day rally to demand equal rights for LGBT in Malaysia. “We are not going to be the elephant in the room anymore. We are here and we want people to take notice of us. We want equal rights too,” a representative of the group named Yee Shan told the Malay Mail. Malaysia’s LGBT community tend to keep a low profile in the country where homosexuality is illegal and authorities routinely crack down on their activities.
