“Some stories need telling, and they need to be heard.”– Mata Hati Kita/ The Eyes of Our Hearts, Angela M. Kuga Thas (Editor) & Jac sm Kee (Editor)
Mata Hati Kita took 24 first-person narratives of lesbians, bisexual women, and transgender people into the public domain at a time when no one expected such a book to sit on the shelves of book stores around Malaysia.
It was positively reviewed by Nik Abdul Razak who was then a member of the Islamic political party, PAS, but is currently a member of the Islamist political party, Amanah. The review in the Malay language can be found here.
