Serving the Singaporean transgender community

(We are looking for volunteers! If you are interested to help out, drop us an email at contacttransgendersg at with your skillset and availability. Trans people are especially encouraged to apply.)

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.

Feel free to contact us if you have additional questions not covered on this site.
