Most LGBT Singaporeans are afraid to come out of the closet. This stems from a fear that the simple act of telling the truth can potentially pull them apart from the people that they love. As such, many of them live their lives dodging questions about their romantic life, hiding their true selves from concerned family members and friends.
From a young age, many LGBT Singaporeans struggle with self-acceptance. They know that they are inherently different from others, but they do not understand why. It doesn’t help that most of them have been told only one viewpoint by their parents, educators and society – that what they feel is wrong.
Over time, LGBT individuals distance themselves from the ones they love. This comes from a fear of compromising relationships – relationships that have taken a long time to build – with parents, siblings, relatives, schoolmates, friends and colleagues.
Pink Dot believes that love is best built on a foundation of trust and honesty, not fear and shame. As a group, we hope to bring LGBT individuals closer to their families and friends. Change for the better happens through conversations, not cover-ups and covert lives.
