Embracing diversity in our lives
Oogachaga is a community-based, non-profit, professional organisation working with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning and queer (LGBTQ+) individuals, couples and families in Singapore since 1999.
We are registered as a non-profit business (registration number: 53035413J), under our parent company SPACES Counseling and Community Limited (registration number: 200402955N) with charity status (charity number: 1812).
To mark Oogachaga’s 20th anniversary in 2019, we will be running a series of professional training workshops for social service, healthcare and education professionals, so as to better equip them with the awareness, knowledge and skills in working with their LGBTQ+ service-users.

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.
We have become aware of the role played by recreational and addictive drugs in our community, and we are deeply concerned. We feel it is time for us to rewrite the queer narrative.
