Dear FabAsia visitors
Please help Oogachaga with the below survey.
This survey “Impact of Homophobia and Transphobia on the LGBTQ individuals in Singapore” is conducted by Oogachaga, Singapore’s only community based organisation providing counselling and support for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning communities.
Homophobia and transphobia are defined as a range of negative attitudes and feelings towards homosexuality and transgenderism. These phobias also affect people who are identified as or perceived as being homosexual and transgender, respectively. These negative attitudes may include antipathy, contempt, prejudice, aversion, and irrational fear of homosexuals and/or transgender people.
Being a minority population, some members of the LGBT community in Singapore may have experienced homophobia or transphobia in his/her life. This survey aims to find out the sources of homophobia/transphobia and the impact(s) it may have on the individual.
The information we gather from this survey will help us in planning for programs and campaigns that may address these issues. We have a confidentiality policy that we will strictly adhere to; your feedback will be kept anonymous, and any identifying information captured will be kept confidential.
This survey will take about 10 to 15 minutes to complete. We would be very grateful for your response by 22 April 2012. We also hope that this survey result can be as accurate as possible, so please help us by not leaving the survey incomplete.
We are looking for responses from residents in Singapore. Please also help us by forwarding this survey to someone whom you think can contribute to it.
