charting the struggles of the LGBT community in Singapore
- I read about how transgendered individuals felt like the society they lived in had no space for their existence, and how they had a clear understanding of who they were despite everybody else's disapproval for who they want to be. I decided to look into issues pertaining the LGBT community in Singapore because it's a community that needs their voices to be heard. Although none of us can ever understand how they truly feel, the least we can do is to lend a ear and listen to what they have to say about what they feel about themselves.
