With all the ongoing debates, media coverage and online chatter around repealing or retaining section 377A of the Penal Code, some of us may be feeling overwhelmed. Here are some tips that may help:

Oogachaga proudly and fully supports the petition regarding the 2018 review of the Singapore Penal Code, which was presented to the Ministry of Home Affairs on 28 September 2018.

Section 377A is a colonial law that criminalises consensual sex between men. In the past, Singaporeans have been charged, convicted, and punished under this law. Even if it is not actively enforced, the law still punishes our gay friends and relatives by signalling that what they do, and who they are, is condemnable and wrong.

I’m here before you today because of the people around me - my friends, my family, my parents. Thank you for making me brave. Let us be that source of courage for someone else who needs it.
