Launch of SAFE at Pelangi Pride Centre's Community Fair
SAFE launched its website on 9 Dec, at Pelangi Pride Centre's Community Fair. The invitation-only event at Mox Bar was attended by some 250 guests, comprised of parents, relatives, friends, well-wishers, volunteers and members of the various LGBTQ community groups.

We are grateful to Pelangi Pride Centre for organizing the fair and inviting SAFE to be a part of it, especially to Eileena Lee and Charmaine Tan who helped oversee the smooth running of the launch. Also, Mox Bar for generously hosting the event; Grace and Steffie, the jazz duo who provided the evening's entertainment; and Daniel Tung, who translated our speeches into sign language for our hearing-impaired guests.

We especially thank everyone who took time out of their weekend to attend the launch, as well as those of you who wrote in with words of encouragement and support.

For those of you who could not attend the launch, we have published here the various speeches made by the founding members of SAFE and their supporters.

From left to right, Susan Tang, Tan Joo Hymn, Dr Khoo Hoon Eng,
Suchen Christine Lim, and Lim Chi-Sharn.
