SINGLE GAY MAN DECRY HDB FOR DISCRIMINATION, FORCED TO PAY $120,000 RENT B4 ELIGIBLE FOR FLAT

I'm a single gay in my early 20s, I've always wanted to own a home as I don't get along with my family members and have been renting rooms to live. HDB allows only singles who are at least 35 to buy a HDB. I did a calculation, If I spend roughly $10000 a year renting until I'm 35, I would have spent at least 120K on renting, which is enough to buy me 1/2 of a HDB or 1/3 of a HDB flat. I did jobs help here and there and managed to save up a home fund of about 100K. Which is enough for a HDB down payment. Yet I'm homeless. I feel like crying. They really discriminate singles and gays.

Hew was a housing and maintenance inspector attached to HDB's Clementi West office in 1987, when he forged the signatures of two senior HDB officers for 18 works order, which were then worth over S$25,000. The sanitary works were not carried out, and subsequent investigations uncovered more than a hundred other forged work documents. Hew was a Malaysian and he had his then Malaysia Restricted Passport seized when investigations were carried against him back in 1988. Despite the seizure, and knowing that he was wanted by Corrupt Practices and Investigation Bureau officers, Hew fled from Singapore.
