The new issue of groundbreaking LGBTI magazine My.Kali features bold images of a trans man on its cover. Jordanian gay advocate, Khalid ‘Kali’ Abdel-Hadi founded and publishes My.Kali. The English language version of webzine My.Kali launched online in 2007. It began publishing an Arabic version in 2016. This action promoted widespread attention and criticism in the Middle East. However, as the title is online only, it does not have to register with Jordanian authorities. This is a requisite for all print publications in the region. This means My.Kali largely escapes censure by local authorities, who have stated a printed version would lead to prosecution.
