  1. Hey, PN, you don’t include a section for Singapore in your countries or Asia section, can you put this right please?

    That is a brave man. Not everyone would come out publicly in a country were sex between men is punishable with 2 years in prison. Of course it is worse in Africa. Makes all the lying homophobic frightened hypocrites in europe that much harder to stomack.

    I think that the repeal of anti-gay laws in Singapore should happen soon rather than eventually and the sooner the better. Singapore is an amazing example of different races and religions living together in harmony and it is time to introduce LGBT people into the mix.

  4. The only way for change is for this 10% of the population (open or still in the closet) to vote the current homophobic and transphobic policy makers out of the government; who refuse to embrace human rights of LGBTs and implement the necessary anti-discrimination work laws, and even effectively supports slavery by refusing to implement the most basic FAIR minimum wage system so that lower income earners could survive Singapore’s inflating cost of living due to unregulated greed of big profit-driven corporations at the expense of the people.
