SEKSUALITI Merdeka is an annual sexuality rights festival featuring a programme of talks, lectures, forums, workshops, theatre and music performances, interactive installations and film screenings. Launched in 2008, the festival aims to underscore the fact that even after 52 years of independence, many of us are still not free to be who we are.
The festival is being held for the second time this year from 12 to 16 Aug 2009 at the Annexe@Central Market. This year’s theme is Our Bodies, Our Rights. The festival will focus on issues such as privacy, moral policing and human rights that affect everyone.
The Fairly Current Show host Fahmi Fadzil speaks with Seksualiti Merdeka co-organiser and feminist activist Jac SM Kee to find out more about the festival and the issues at stake.
Kee is a writer who has been published by both online and offline journals, and a columnist for several Malaysian newspapers. She is also a poet and occasional painter.
