LAUNCH: "Violence & Discrimination Against LBTQ Women in Singapore", ed. Sayoni

  • The Projector 6001 Beach Road Singapore, 199589 Singapore (map)

Finally, this long awaited research is here on the discrimination and violence faced by LBTQ persons in Singapore.

Singapore actively proclaims its duty to protect all LGBT persons living in Singapore. Yet human rights violations against LBTQ persons in the country remain largely invisible and persistent. Although Section 377A of the penal code does not criminalise lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer (LBTQ) persons, it institutionalises a legislative and administrative framework of discrimination based on sexuality and gender, and promotes violence and discrimination.

As far as we know, Violence & Discrimination Against LBTQ Women in Singapore is the first attempt to systematically document the experiences of LBTQ persons in Singapore. The book comprises 14 chapters and also includes helpful resources for individuals seeking help.
