About Dear Straight People

In Singapore, positive LGBT+ media representation is banned on mainstream media.

As a result, the only LGBT+ representation we see on mainstream media are outdated harmful stereotypes.

About Dear Straight People

Founded in 2015, Dear Straight People first gained recognition for our 'Out Of The Closet' series. Since then, we have expanded the scope of our content to include anything and everything related to the LGBT+ community.

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.
  • Produced 'Getaway', Singapore's first gay BL web drama series.

Our Goals

 Dear Straight People hopes to become a prominent voice and platform for the LGBT+ community in Singapore and the rest of Asia. Our goals include:
  • Supporting The LGBT+ Community
    • Conduct pro-bono fundraising campaigns to raise funds for one LGBT+ charity every quarter.
  • Telling empowering stories of the LGBT+ community
    • Produce coming out stories, short films & web series to give higher insight to the LGBT+ experience in Southeast Asia.
  • Amplifying issues that the LGBT+ community faces
    • Documentaries, opinion pieces and more highlighting issues pertinent to the community.
  • Providing a voice to the LGBT+ community
    • Providing a platform to other LGBT+ content creators to share their stories and insights.

If you believe in the work and potential that Dear Straight People has, please support Dear Straight People by becoming a patron at the level that you can.

Yours Sincerely,
