Singapore

Gary and Kenneth, together for 15 years, are involved in a court appeal challenging Singapore's S377A, a constitutional statute that criminalizes homosexuality. They are raising funds for their case via Indiegogo.

"We shouldn't be treated as criminals just because of our sexual orientation."

Check out their video, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. OMG, don't stop your fight for the right to love. Here in the USA we are fighting for marriage rights. We might be ahead of your situation, but still fight discrimination. Keep up the good fight.

  2. If Singapore as a nation want to be seen as a develop country or first world nation, it needs to be progressive when it comes to human right issues. All laws that criminalized minorities need to be abolish. If Vietnam is looking into legalizing same sex marriage, it's time for Singapore,a nation advance almost in every aspect but human rights, should come to it's senses.

  7. Chewing gum is a criminal offense in Singapore, so how much more homosexuality.

  10. Nothing is going to change. The only reason this lawsuit is happening in Singapore and not China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan etc. is because the city was founded by the English and still has the residual effects of Western culture.

  11. I hope that it works out for them! I am shocked that Singapore has this sort of law!

  12. Empathy is not encouraged in Asian countries or it is in a different way. That is, usually individuals serve the group (family, country, whatever) and not the other way around. Hope they have a change but for what I heard the supreme court declared (sort of) it is not its function to meddle with very well established social stances, ludicrous as it sounds.

  13. Can there be any doubt that these two loving men have been inspired by the growth of American/Canadian freedoms and rights for gay people? What we do, what we accomplish matters.

  14. Wow, 15 years! Good luck to both of them and to Singapore as well. Our neighbor is such a contradicting country in many ways. Just because it's a well developed country in economic wise, doesn't mean it fares well in human rights as well. They have so many stupid rules! But if this comes through, it's going to make a big impact throughout the region.
