Youth Activist Daryl Yang: Politics Not The Only Answer To Singapore LGBT Progress

Youth Activist Daryl Yang: Politics Not The Only Answer To Singapore LGBT Progress | PinkieB.com | Gay and Lesbian Life | Scoop.it
The power of the youth to volunteer and stand together will push LGBT progress forward, Daryl says.
Matt Skallerud's insight:

Youth activist Daryl Yang, 23, has been holding the fort at the helm of youth activism especially in the Singapore LGBT community this past year, as outgoing coordinator of The G Spot, a student group from Yale-NUS College concerned with issues surrounding gender and sexuality. As he passes on the baton to new coordinators Paul Jerusalem and Guadalupe Lazaro, Daryl said to Popspoken that he learnt that while being in The G Spot, the power of organising people for collective action is a major tool that can move LGBTQ equality forward in Singapore beyond the repealing of the anti-gay Section 377A law.

Featuring I’m Gay And Instagram Is Ruining My Life — Alfredo Murillo, BuzzFeed Spain

Matt Skallerud's insight:

“Suddenly I’m the one that’s no longer ‘normal.’ My rolls of fat aren’t ‘normal’ because I’m not comparing them to the perfectly chiseled stomach of an extremely famous model, but to something a lot closer: the perfectly chiseled stomach of my third-floor neighbor, who I ~casually~ found on Instagram.”

Why Curve—the Self-Described “Best-Selling Lesbian Magazine”—Refuses to Drop the L Word

Why Curve—the Self-Described “Best-Selling Lesbian Magazine”—Refuses to Drop the L Word | PinkieB.com | Gay and Lesbian Life | Scoop.it

Curve—a magazine focused on lesbian news, politics, culture, lifestyle, travel, and fashion—was founded in 1990 (under the title of Deneuve) in San Francisco by Frances Stevens and Outspoken Enterprises. Like other niche publications, its mission was to provide a community of readers with a medium that provided visibility and information. Its longevity is unusual and the result of hard work, determination, a change of ownership in 2010, stringent budget cuts, and a merger with a similar U.K. publication earlier this year.
