My name is Sean Foo and I'm the founder of Dear Straight People - an online LGBT publication based in Singapore.

Over the past two years, Dear Straight People has:

  • Published more than 50 different coming out stories of openly queer Asians ranging from an openly gay pastor to a same-sex family.
  • Produced a range of videos ranging from an interview with a mother of two gay sons to a LGBT National Day song cover to empower Singapore's LGBT community. 
  • Collaborated with community groups in fund-raising efforts such as producing this video for Singapore's only LGBT counselling centre and this photo album for a sex worker rights group.
  • Provided a platform for queer people to voice their opinions and tell their stories.
  • Educated straight people on LGBT related matters.

Why I Am Turning To Patreon

Running Dear Straight People has easily been the most rewarding thing I've ever done in my life. But it has also been exhausting. Single handedly running Dear Straight People while holding a full-time day job has not been easy. And I've burnt countless nights and weekends doing so.

So I've decided to turn to Patreon in the hopes that I don't burn out like the many others who have come before me. 

As my patron, you will gain access to a wide range of rewards including exclusive patron-only content, behind the scene access, sneak peeks and even exclusive deals and discounts with pro-LGBT businesses. 

I believe that the work that I do through Dear Straight People is important. And if you've read this far, hopefully you do too.

Goals
$356 of $2,500 per month
With your support, I hope to:
  • Cover production costs. We don't ever charge the community groups we have helped and I have so far personally covered all production related costs such as equipment rental, transport, food etc. 
  • Promote Dear Straight People's content to reach people outside of our pro-LGBT 'bubble'. Organic reach for Facebook is falling due to Facebook's new algorithm making it harder for us to reach those outside of our community.
  • Commission content creators to produce quality content 3 times a week. Due to manpower issues, our current capacity only allows us to produce one content piece a week on average. 
  • Expand our pool of content creators to include quality contributors from other countries 
  • Our ultimate dream is to produce an LGBT themed web series or short film set in Singapore!
