ASIAN WEBSITE CONDUCTS LANDMARK SURVEY OF GAYS AND LESBIANS IN ASIA
12 Dec, 2001
December 12, 2001, Singapore - Fridae.com, Asia's largest Gay+Lesbian website, has launched the first ever survey of the online GLBT community in Asia.
Fridae's partnership with Strategic Intelligence, an independent Asian business research company (www.strategici.com) on this groundbreaking survey hopes to provide the scientific and objective fodder for much discussion and discourse.
Results from this landmark survey will also be used to design a much larger and more comprehensive study which organisers hope will set benchmarks for comparison to the rest of the world.
Dr Stuart Koe, Chief Operating Officer of the 9-month old portal says: "The gay and lesbian community in Asia has never ever been polled in this manner, primarily because they have been hard to identify (as a group), and harder to reach. To now be able to at least give some shape and form to this large and varied group of people would go a long way to help the cause of both social and political activists."
In order for the survey to have the significance it can have, he urges every gay and lesbian individual in Asia-Pacific region to support and participate in this groundbreaking study.
"The gay and lesbian community in Asia will finally be able to stand up and be counted. Every little counts. We are no longer hiding under rocks in ignominy."
