Send your MP a National Day present

Ever thought of sending your Member of Parliament (MP) a present to mark National Day?

And what better gift than a book?

Or an ebook, since all MPs probably have their own tablet or e-reader.

I Will Survive: Personal gay, lesbian, bisexual & transgender stories in Singapore” is a collection which brings together the real-life experiences of love, grace, faith, dignity and courage of ordinary people under extraordinary circumstances.

To mark National Day in August, and in collaboration with publisher Monsoon Books, we will send a copy of the ebook to a Singapore Member of Parliament for every pledge received from a Singapore citizen or permanent resident. Free-of-charge!

We hope to receive pledges to send copies to all 87 elected MPs, 3 non-constituency MPs & 9 nominated MPs. The purpose is to remind our MPs that, even as they continue to serve this beautiful country, hopefully they will also remember the struggles, challenges, hopes and dreams of our gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities.

To make a pledge,  email and tell us:

  • Your full name (or whether you prefer to remain anonymous).
  • Your address (or postal code) so we can locate your constituency & MP.
  • Whether you would like to add a personalised message for your MP.

You can get in touch before 31 August through the website, or look for me at upcoming IndigNation events.

Update (1 September): A total of 70 copies of the ebook have been pledged & sent to 60 elected MPs, 3 NCMPs, 6 NMPs & 1 former GE candidate.  You can refer to this list of MPs to see who has not yet been sent a copy of the book.

Majulah Singapura!
