PETALING JAYA: Theatre icon Jo Kukathas has called for all portraits at the George Town Festival exhibition to be taken down as an act of solidarity with the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) activists whose portraits were removed.

"Following an order portraits of Nisha Ayub and Pang Khee Teik have been taken down on the grounds that they are LGBT activists, I hope the other people whose portraits are part of the exhibition request that their portraits be taken down too as an act of solidarity with their fellow Malaysians.
