Human worth and dignity: two stories of the LGBT community in Singapore

Humanist societySunday August 3
1pm
SMU Admin Building, Level 4

I believe that everybody should be treated equally and also that we should all really try to get along, not judge people based on certain things you don’t agree with, or you don’t really know about.”

(Interview with gay activist- an excerpt from “Mobilizing Gay Singapore”).

The Humanist Society (Singapore) presents a discussion on human worth and dignity, by looking at two perspectives of the LGBT community in Singapore.

Mr Alex Au, of the Yawning Bread blog fame, will present his personal journey as a high-profile member of the LGBT community, and how he continues in the face of the odds.

The 2nd speaker, Asst Prof Lynette J Chua, will present her new book: “Mobilizing Gay Singapore: Rights and Resistance in an Authoritarian State”, which analyzes the development, strategy and tactics of Singapore’s LGBT movement.

Asst Prof Chua will examine the meanings of rights that emerge from the book’s ethnographic study of Singapore’s LGBT activists and discuss how they influence the ways in which these activists continue to mobilize in face of legal and political obstacles.

The talks will be followed by a Q&A moderated by President of the Humanist Society, Mr Paul Tobin. Attendees are welcome to purchase the book: “Mobilizing Gay Singapore” at the event and join Asst Prof Chua for a special book-signing session.

$12 for Humanist Society (HSS) members and $15 for non-HSS members. Please RSVP to make payment and confirm your booking. Only 200 seats available.
