To empower queer women towards greater involvement and presence in the community
OUR VISION
Advocacy for LBTQ women's rights at CEDAW
Sayoni was at the United Nations in Geneva in October 2017 to bring Singapore LBTQ women's issues to the forefront. The CEDAW Committee heard our concerns and raised recommendations related to LBTQ women in their Concluding Observations for the Singapore government.

Sayoni is a Singapore-based feminist, volunteer-run organisation that works to uphold human rights protections for queer women, including lesbian, bisexual and transgender women. We organise and advocate for equality in well-being and dignity regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity/expression and sex characteristics.

We believe that everyone has a part to play in improving the lives of LBTQ people. Donate or volunteer with us.

IndigNation 2012 Event: Airing the Closet

 

What's it like to come out as a gay person in Singapore? How do the themes of our hopes, guilt and silence play out, both in and out of the closet?

Coming out can be painless for some but stressful and even traumatic for others. Through sharing from our guest speakers and the audience in a talk show format, Sayoni hopes to delve into the complexities of how every LGBTQ person reveals their sexual orientation -- for the first time, and each subsequent time -- in the coming out process.

If you're thinking of coming out or have questions or stories of your own to share, come and join us for an evening of chit-chat!

 

Airing the Closet: Our Very Own Chit-Chat

Date: 7 Aug 2012 (Saturday)

Time: 7-10pm

Location: KICKstart BREWiches (50 Armenian Street)
