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.
