Support The Fight For LGBT Rights In Asia

The recent successful campaign to decriminalize homosexuality in India (Read more…) has energized LGBT rights advocates across Asia. However the fight for rights continues and the latest hotspots are Taiwan and Singapore.

Taiwan Marriage Equality Referendum

Taiwan has long shown what’s possible in the movement for LGBT equality in Asia. Last year, a ruling from their country’s highest court positioned Taiwan to be the first country in Asia to win marriage equality. But now, anti-LGBT forces have forced three referenda on November 24 aiming to block same-sex couples from marrying and attack LGBT youth. If these opponents get their way, Taiwan’s major advances in LGBT equality could all be wiped out. Find out more…

Singapore Campaign To End Gay Sex Ban

Singapore is another former British colony and like India it also has a statute created during the colonial era – Section 377A – which outlaws same sex relations. LGBT activists have been trying for over a decade to get the law scrapped but powerful conservative forces in the country are continuing to block any reform. Encouraged by successful legal action taken against similar laws in India, Singaporean LGBT advocates have launched their own legal case against the laws in Singapore. And a recent petition calling for law reform garnered over 40,000 signatures. Find out more…


Sign Petition To Repeal Singapore’s Section 377A

A new Change.org petition, which has already been signed by 27,000 people, is calling on the Singapore government to scrap the colonial era statute, end the law’s unjust discrimination and bring about a truly inclusive and diverse Singapore rather than a divisive and intolerant one. Please help make change happen in Singapore. Sign the petition now!
