Mata Hati Kita – The Eyes of Our Hearts – S$22.00

Some stories need telling, and they need to be heard. Here are twenty-four stories that invite readers to witness the lives of lesbians, bisexual women and trans people. These true stories speak of our shared struggles of being human, of loving, of living for oneself and of living for others. The realities of people who are non-conforming in their sexuality and gender identity are too often rendered invisible, and their voices silenced. This book attempts to change this, to help us all bear witness to ‘the heart truth’ of our fellow Malaysians.
Ada kisah yang harus diwartai, kisah-kisah yang harus didengari. Dipersembahkan dua puluh empat cerita yang ingin menjemput para pembaca menjadi saksi kehidupan para lesbian, wanita biseksual dan orang trans.
Kisah-kisah benar ini menceritakan perjuangan bersama kita sebagai manusia, ketika bercinta, ketika melalui kehidupan demi diri sendiri dan ketika melalui kehidupan demi orang lain. Realiti mereka yang mempunyai seksualiti dan identiti gender yang tidak sepadan dengan apa yang dijangkakan kerapkali dilenyapkan, dan suara mereka dibisukan. Buku ini berhajat untuk mengubah keadaan, dengan membantu kita semua bersaksi akan ‘kebenaran hati’ mereka yang juga rakyat Malaysia.
