“I Will Survive: Personal gay, lesbian, bisexual & transgender stories in Singapore”
What is it like to be gay and experience bullying in school or National Service? How do you deal with being rejected by your family and religious group because of your sexual orientation? How are women’s experiences different or similar to men’s? What does one go through in an abusive same-sex relationship, or when one loses a partner to suicide? What does a transgender man or woman go through in Singapore? When you have been diagnosed with a life-long illness, how do you continue living?
“I Will Survive: Personal gay, lesbian, bisexual & transgender stories in Singapore” is a collection that brings together real-life experiences of love, grace, faith, dignity and courage from 21 ordinary gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people in Singapore who have survived extraordinary circumstances.
Come and join the editor, Leow Yangfa, along with some special guests, for an intimate & interactive reading session. A small number of copies of the book will be available for sale, and some are available for loan from the library.
