Two years ago, Dear Straight People published Xuan’s coming out story. A few weeks later, we had to take the story down as it was causing him too much tension at home.

Dear People, Meet 23-year old Singaporean Jerome Alexander Chan. On the surface, Jerome Alexander Chan is a very easy figure to hate on. With his boyish good looks and army of almost 20,000 Instagram followers, Jerome appears to be your typically vapid influencer who has never had to endure any hardships in life. But anyone who has

Dear Gay People, Do you know what’s the biggest lie about love? It’s that ‘Love conquers all‘. Or at least, that seems to be the general consensus in the gay community. The notion that gay relationships don’t last long is a stereotype that ‘pro-family’ homophobes seem to be particularly fond of. And while there are plenty
Dear People, Meet 41-year old Miak Siew… An openly gay pastor in Singapore! Miak is not your typical pastor. And I’m not saying that just because he’s gay. Dressed casually in the typical Singaporean ensemble of a T-shirt and shorts the first time we met, Miak certainly doesn’t fit into traditional notions of how a
Dear People, Meet 58-year old Singaporean Roy Tan; the unofficial historian of Singapore’s LGBT community. Older than Singapore herself, Roy has personally lived through Singapore’s LGBT history in its entirety.
