Prominent social worker Mr. Jolovan Wham together with a friend Ming Poon took to the streets of Singapore to conduct a social experiment entitled “hold my hand”. When at Dhoby Ghaut MRT Station, they openly held out signs with the captions “An Equal Love” and “Happy To Be Gay” to express solidarity with the LGBT community in Singapore.
Mr Wham shared on his facebook:
“My 1 hour train ride to love with Ming Poon last month as part of an art experiment he conducted entitled “hold my hand”.”
After his facebook post, netizens were curious if there were hostile reactions to his pro-LGBT actions in public. Wham replied saying that “there were these 2 women on the train who kept staring and whispering to themselves.”
Others netizens like Joseph Henderson-Tang was impressed with their bravery in putting themselves out there and said “Sibeh Tua lumpah you two. Bravo”.
Are Singaporeans brave enough to stand up for their beliefs and fight for equal rights for the LGBT community? When will Singapore do the right thing and fulfill the pledge where citizens are treated with fairness and equality?
