YOH's Statement on Singapore High Court's decision to uphold Section 377A

As a community youth group dedicated to safeguarding the welfare of young LGBTQ Singaporeans, Young OUT Here is deeply disappointed with the High Court of Singapore’s decision to dismiss the constitutional challenge against Section 377a of the Penal Code. 

Such a decision would have an adverse impact on the wellbeing of young Singaporeans, many of whom face discrimination daily, in the form of teasing, bullying, and even outright physical abuse. 

Nonetheless, YOH and our allies remain committed to championing the safety and welfare of Singapore’s LGBTQ youth, in the hopes that Singapore will one day see them for the talented, unique individuals that they are.
