Dear ASS Editors,
Singaporeans are debating PAP Minister Josephine Teo’s ludicrous claims that you only need a small space to have sex and to make babies. While most of you Singaporeans are having a field day poking fun at her gaffe, there is a group of Singaporeans who do not even enjoy such a small space. We are the LGBTQ community, we have no voice, we have no legal space to even have sex with the people we love.
While most of you complain about the lack of private space to have sex, I have to be wary whenever I have sex with my long time partner. There is Section 377A which still criminalized sex among gay men. You do not understand the fear we live under, the constant threat of persecution by bigoted members of the public and this unjust law which may fall on our heads anytime.
Treat us equally as Singaporeans and give us the space to lead our own lives just like other Singaporeans. Give us our freedom and space.
