About

Being LGBTQ+ in Asia is hard. As a highly marginalised community, many are still closeted due to discriminatory laws and conservative societies.

Launched in 2015, Dear Straight People first started gaining recognition for our coming out stories. Since then, we have grown to become Asia's leading LGBTQ+ publication that reaches over 300,000 people a month with over 25,000 highly engaged followers on social media.

Over the years, Dear Straight People has:

  • Published more than 60 different coming out stories of openly queer Asians ranging from an openly gay pastor to a same-sex family.
  • Produced a range of impactful videos from this interview with a mother of two gay sons to a viral documentary on a gay Malay couple accepted by their family.
  • Collaborated with community groups in fund-raising efforts such as this video for Singapore's only LGBT counselling centre and this photo album for a sex worker rights group.
  • Compile valuable resources for the community such as this PrEP Guide
  • Provided a platform for queer people to voice their opinions and tell their stories.
So why do we have a Patreon page? Contrary to popular belief, content creation takes time, effort and money. The more Patrons we have, the more content we can produce and the less reliant we become on sponsorships.

As one of the few inclusive publications in Asia, we believe that the work that Dear Straight People does is important. And if you've read this far, hopefully you do too
