I Will Survive: A public apology

Singapore flag

I Will Survive apologises for being gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender,

Queer, PLU, faggot, dyke, poof, AJ, butch, femme, sister,

Pondan, ah kua, bapok, ren yao, wadam, kedi, muffadet, 302;

Or whatever you may choose to call us.

We are deeply sorry to be subjected to:

Homophobia, transphobia, biphobia, heterosexism,

Misrepresentation, abuse, discrimination, stigma, violence;

And not have anyone else understand what it really means to us.

We unreservedly apologise for having unequal access to:

Safer sex education, employment opportunities, home ownership,

Healthcare treatment, media portrayal, social support,

And justice.

We wholly accept that we have no equal rights to:

Marriage, parenthood, adoption,

Safety, freedom, expression,

And love.
