The death of a trans woman in the Malaysian town of Klang, the second in less than a month, has prompted calls for the government to better protect the LGBT+ community. The body of the 37 year old was recovered by the side of a road on January 1 and brought to the Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital (HTAR) Klang, where doctors notified the police, according to Malaysian publication The Star. The injuries the woman sustained—on the left ankle, left eyebrow and to the nose—suggest she either fell or was thrown out of a vehicle. Another trans woman died at the same hospital in December after being beaten by a group of young men.
