Issues related to LGBT have always been considered taboo as a young Singaporean growing up. As it’s not as culturally acceptable, those struggling with their sexualities often have no one to turn to for fear of being rejected or ridiculed.
“If you want to change the behavior, address the fear” – Seth Godin
We often fear what we don’t understand. And without dialogue, there can be no understanding.
That’s why when Jamie Yee, a post-op transgendered woman, took the brave step to tell her story on camera, it opened the doors to a better understanding of the challenges faced by the LGBT community. I’m so glad Jamie’s parents, though they were against it at first, agreed to share their perspective too. This beautiful video by PinkDot.sg puts a human face on an issue that really needs to be raised.
