On 22 December 2016 at 14:30 GMT, BBC World News interviewed Bryan Choong, a Singaporean LGBT activist and Victoria Hsu, Taiwan's first openly lesbian politician.

Another report was lodged by Mr Leow Yangfa, 41, executive director of LGBT counselling group Oogachaga. “Many of our clients describe our centre as a safe space for them to come and seek non-judgmental support. It is my responsibility to ensure that this sense of safety is not threatened or compromised by anyone,” he said.

Said Mr Leow: “Even though we have strong control over who has access to firearms in Singapore, the fact remains that certain segments of our civilian population - such as NSmen and auxiliary police officers - do have access to firearms.

”This worries me greatly, in view of the threat made by Mr Bryan Lim in his Facebook comment.”
