I Will Survive

Sunny-Side-Up is a weekend column celebrating clear blue skies, fancy bookmarks and the snooze button. In other words, expect book/film reviews, DIY crafts and easy recipes for a lovely weekend.

We do no harm to others, and simply ask to be left alone. That’s all we want.
–Stefanie

I Will Survive is a collection of real-life experiences from 21 LGBT people in Singapore. But you don’t have to identify as one to read this book. Reading their stories makes me realise how narrow my mind is, and teaches me to embrace diversity. What Reverend Yap Kim Hao wrote is very true: Who would knowingly join a despised minority group?

The fight for gay rights is a long and tough one. But it will get better.
