Mothers' Day Forum @ AWARE
The Association of Women for Action and Research (AWARE) is folding a forum on Sunday, May 7, to celebrate Mother's Day.
Titled Mothers & Daughters - Unconditional Love, the panelists in the forum will share their experiences as daughters who had come out to their mothers, mothers of gay sons and/or daughters as well as lesbians who are mothers themselves.
The informal panel discussion will explore issues such as homophobia, religious perspectives, parental expectations and what it is like for families living in to deal with homosexuality.
Panelists include Deeksha Vasundhra, Madam Yiap Geok Khuan (Eileena's mum), Eileena Lee, Khoo Hoon Eng, Suzanne Pemberton and Susan Yap.
AWARE is Singapore's first and currently the only advocacy group dedicated to promoting gender equality and understanding in Singapore.
