Malaysia offers up to $1000 for best 'gay prevention' video
The Malaysian government is offering cash prizes of up to $1,000 for the best videos explaining how to “prevent” homosexuality, according to a competition launched on the health ministry’s website.
Activists on Saturday said the move will further spread fear among Malaysia’s LGBT community, as conservative attitudes chip away at the Muslim-majority nation’s one-time reputation for moderation and tolerance.
Contestants are invited to submit a video clip addressing various categories including gayness or “gender confusion”, and offering suggestions as to how these could be “prevented or controlled”.
