The First Gay Movie In Malaysia

Written by 




In Malaysia, where homosexuality is still a taboo, the first gay movie hits theaters in February.

"... Dalam Botol" ("... in a Bottle") tells the story about a transsexual Muslim man, Ruby, and his lover Ghaus.

"This is the first movie in Malaysia about gays, and it's going to get attention because it's something different." said Wan Raja, who plays Ghaus.

Malaysia allows movies with gay characters (the characters are usually minor), but they are only allowed if they repente of their homosexuality or if they die, except for this one!

This really is the first movie in which the main characters are gay or transgender.
