I Will Survive This June

By Iwillsurvivesg @iwillsurvivesg

colours sqJune is often recognised as lesbian, gay, bisexual & transgender (LGBT) Pride month, to commemorate the Stonewall riots – regarded by many as the birth of the modern LGBT-rights movement – which occurred at the end of June 1969. It also marks the start of summer in the northern hemisphere, heralding warmer weather and longer days. Many cities therefore organize Pride events in June to recognize and celebrate the impact and contributions of LGBT communities. In Singapore, Pink Dot - a large-scale public event  – will be held on 29 June at Hong Lim Park.

This June, I Will Survive celebrates LGBT Pride with the following activities:

I Will Survive this JuneI Will Survive in Family Service Centres is a month-long appeal to crowd-source funds to purchase copies of the book to be sent to Family Service Centres (FSCs), which are community-based social service centres staffed by professional social workers and counsellors. To date, funds have been raised to send books to all 42 FSCs, and additional funds pledged will go towards purchasing copies for counseling departments in universities, polytechnics and junior colleges. This professional outreach programme is carried out in collaboration with Oogachaga Counselling & Support.

I Will Survive this JuneI Will Survive in the Community is an intimate and interactive reading session to be held on 15 June, Saturday afternoon. There will be guests reading excerpts from the book, followed by Q & A with the editor.

Admission is free, and places are limited, so click on the link to register now!
