Singapore Lawyers to Launch LGBT Legal Guide

Funds are being raised to publish a Legal Guidebook for LGBT Couples & Families in Singapore.

Singaporean lawyer Indulekshmi Rajeswari has launched a guidebook to navigate Singapore’s “legal ambiguities” regarding marriage and cohabitation contracts, property, wills and inheritance, medical decisions, and children for LGBT couples and families.

She begun the project in November 2015 together with a team of 18 volunteers, including lawyers, law students, academics, editors, and designers.

Rajeswari told the Straits Times she was inspired to write the book after often being approached by friends for LGBT legal advice.

“I knew my friends were asking me because they did not know other LGBT-friendly lawyers," she said.

A GiveAsia campaign was launched two weeks ago to fund the project and had its target of $10,000 to print 2,000 copies. As of Monday, almost $18,000 had been raised.

The guidebook will be distributed to LGBT organisations and be made available for free online.

Mr Leow Yangfa, executive director of LGBT counselling group Oogachaga, told the Straits Times that the resource fills a “much needed resource gap” for social workers, said.

There are Gays in all countries, and we all gays are bonding brothers.

criminalizing gay marriage is disability of Legal.

Look on How invader/Hidden terrorist become Legal?
you are not sensitive to see signals and do not able to dive seeds of siege by enemies

You had learned what adopted by religion politics as Rhetoric speech.
When they call God/Allah- mean that they call Evil

Look why you see many people preaching in Religion House?
because they had learned how to preach/ to influence/ to dominate/ to mastering/ to become Law/to punish those are different, etc. that is patterns of their behavior.

You gays have own conflicts that should be solved because you do not know on how yourself to become prophet, to create new hollybooks.
I remember when I was student in east java, Visited Gay organization but that lack of empowerment to spread weapon.

All gays need more training for not just to be little girl
If you Gays want to be girly just learn on how Heterosexual men have no bravery to attack women

Probably, you all Gays (what ever your position) but you need to imagine yourself as a boss having many departments and you know the jobs of all departments and their problems.

If you are gays too busy with routine, make sure that you have tentacle.
I studied in engineering but I learned by myself on psychology, Medical, Law, Religions, 5 languages, politics,Agriculture, etc
and I also into social life.

I had visited Singapore and ate seafood soup from west to east, from north to south. so, i know where is the best seafood soup for my tongue there.
That is one the way for gays having more power by walking far.

Have you tried Drug? I did.
by that way, i feel i know on how to avoid addiction but i do not publish the method.

The problems are Gays still like Kid, but you Gay able to change by Training.
When I was a Kid, I just do religion without consciousness and no body Told me all life, Politics, etc.
When I was student, i visited Gay organization in east Java, but Gay organization also did not tell me or other Gays purpose of organization, etc.
All gays now should have education on who are our enemies, how they attack us, etc

Given your self-professed ability with 5 languages, it is a pity that you did not add English to your skill-list.

Your diatribes make absolutely no sense. If you have an axe to grind, I suggest that this is probably not the best forum.

should i be perfect in language for quickly typing?
do you think i regard this is the best forum? so many people with many kinds of background read this forum.
Can you tell me the best forum?
