Help make Singapore’s first documentary on transgender men, following the lives of Christopher & others like him as he takes the final step: Surgery.
Hi there! Not sure if we’re allowed to post this, but I just wanted to share with you the documentary we’re making on FTMs in Singapore.
Singapore’s a modern first world nation, but at the same time, it’s Asian with very conservative traditional values, and that means that for many LGBT people, they face being disowned by their family if they come out.
In Singapore particularly, FTM visibility is almost zero - and that’s one of the main reasons we’re making this documentary.
Some fun facts: 1. There is no legal protection against LGBT discrimination in Singapore. 2. A transgender person cannot get his or her sex change on official documents until he or she has undergone sex reassignment surgery. 3. In Singapore, a transgender person who has not undergone sex reassignment surgery may be arrested for not using the toilet of their biological sex.
We need to hit $15,000 to reach our goal, and so far we’ve got $3.5k. Every dollar / Tweet / FB post counts.
We hope you’ll help us tell an important story about the freedom to love and be loved for who you are.

Please feel free to ask us any questions - we’ll be up all the way (in UTC +8 timezone now).
Guys!!! Recently there’s been a lot of discussion about LGBT issues in our mainstream media following the unshelving of childrens’ titles featuring alternative families and a protest against our version of Pride Day called Pink Dot, among other things.
These have been useful opportunities for promoting discussion about LGBTQ issues in Singapore, but so far public awareness of transgender people is dismal at best! I don’t personally know the creators of this project, but if you guys could help them to get this going it would be a lovely aid to helping us raise awareness about trans* issues while LGBTQ topics are still in the public eye! Please help to signal boost!!

The idea to display the pets inside the store started in Singapore as a collaboration between Ikea and two animal shelters, according to Business Insider. Together they formed the project Home for Hope.
I don’t ever talk about this because it’s SUPER HARD but my father considered himself an MRA. He blamed women for everything wrong in his life.
He learned to hate and blame women the same way racism teaches people to hate and blame minorities.
My mother saved us from his abuse but my father insisted that it was misandry that the court wouldn’t grant him custody.
He wanted to write a book about how to bankrupt your ex wife in court like he had done.
He carved the words “bitch” and “slut” into my mother’s car that she used to take us to school. He refused to pay child support.
He kidnapped me twice, he threatened my aunt’s life for trying to stop him. I was terrified to walk home alone for years.
After all this, my sister and I told the judge we didn’t want to see him anymore, the judge told us “children need a father”.
Despite all of this I still value and love the men in my life. I still listen to men.
My father once told me he didn’t think there were any women who were great artists, I told him other wise.
I told him about sexism, about the systematic exclusion of women artists throughout history.
That women had to use male names in order to be published or taken seriously.
He was surprised, he’d never thought of this.
I said “but dad, I’m an artist and a woman” and he said “yes well, you were raised by ME so you are different.”
Yes he was emotionally unstable, but he believed in ideas that are extremely hateful and harmful even for a stable person.
That is what makes a hate crime different from insanity.
That is why it’s important to talk about sexism, racism, homophobia and transphobia.
That is why it’s important to talk about how sexism effects all people, across the board.
These are human lives and human rights at risk. Stand up against toxic ideas, listen to people who are hurt by them.
don’t tag things like :
- tw: trigger
- tw trigger
tag things like:
- trigger /
- trigger 4
- trigger tw
- trigger -
the thing you’re tagging must be the first thing in the tags and there must be a space after it
none of the proper tags above will be bookmarked on your blog
excess numbers and slashes will slow down xkit
What countries have most influenced the way you speak? Take this test designed by MIT researchers and find out.
Take this test, guys! It determines what dialect you speak (if your native language is English) and which country you are from (if English isn’t your first language!).
It is an algorithm which maps out the differences in English grammar around the world.
Extremely cool, and a correct guess on my dialect.
