The book SQ21: Singapore queers in the 21st century is not just a first for Singapore, but a first for all of Asia. A compilation of personal stories by 15 individuals, it speaks of self-discovery, rejection by family, coming out, love…. and much more.
As Woo Yen Yen and Colin Goh (founders of one of Singapore’s most popular websites, Talking Cock) said in their foreword,
“While we recognise the stories in this book as ordinary accounts of human beings with flaws, we were also struck by the sheer courage displayed by the contributors – the real names, real photographs, real stories, and perhaps the real cost that must be paid for such candour. We feel outraged and saddened by the tragic irony: that to be accepted as ‘ordinary’ requires an act of superhuman bravery.”

Quiet Time by Johan Lee
“Quiet Time tackles an aspect of gay life rarely talked about publicly in Singapore – the desire to be a parent.”
