Serving the Singaporean transgender community
For a long time, transgender people in Singapore have had to rely on word of mouth for information on transitioning, often ending up with outdated or harmful advice. While there are more online resources for the trans community these days, they are largely targetted towards a US or Western audience and are not always applicable to us.
We decided to address that problem by pooling our collective knowledge and experiences of navigating Singaporean life at various stages of transition. The result is this website, created by a team of transgender people in Singapore in conjunction with the Asia-Pacific Transgender Network (APTN). Our hope is that the information here will help other transgender people to have safer, smoother, and easier transitions, relieving some of the burden from what can often be a very tough journey.
Whether you are transgender yourself, have a loved one who just came out, are a healthcare provider or simply wish to find out more about transgender issues in Singapore, we hope that within these pages you will find useful information, support, and the assurance that you are not alone.
