PETALING JAYA: Trans women have urged their families and society to accept them for who they are instead of ostracising them and driving them to depression.

During a “hearing” at the virtual Women’s Tribunal Malaysia today, the organisers brought Paddy (not her real name), a 28-year-old trans woman from Negeri Sembilan, to share her plight at being harassed and discriminated against.

She was one of the three trans women who challenged the constitutionality of the state shariah laws in the Negeri Sembilan High Court in 2011.
