i.matter - share your story on bullying & discrimination.

Calling all LGBTQ youths and straight allies!

As a start to 'i.matter', we're touching on a topic that is pretty close to our hearts and minds. It's a topic that might touch a raw nerve in us as we might be guilty of it ourselves.

A simple "That's so Gay!" remark by a classmate, to being ostracized by platoon mates during National Service for being 'feminine looking', or even being 'outed' intentionally by teachers, to being chased out of a workplace for 'dressing different'.

On the flip side, if you have stood up for your fellow LGBTQ friend in a class debate, or made he/she feel included team sports in school, or even stopping an act of insensitive remark commenting on social media;

We want to hear your stories and voices
Highlight not only the experience, the struggles & the lessons learnt from it but feel free to showcase your emotions throughout it too!
