Legalisation of same-sex marriage in Singapore
0 have signed. Let’s get to 7,500!
Currently, same-sex marriage is illegal in Singapore.
In the past two decades, as awareness for the LGBT community has increased, more and more countries have legalised same-sex marriage, such as Netherlands, USA, Australia, France, Germany, UK, Brazil, South Africa, Taiwan, to name a few.
As a country where equality and harmony are the foundation of our society, I believe that it is time Singapore joined the above-mentioned countries in legalising same-sex marriage.
PM Lee has previously stated that he does not think Singapore is ready for same-sex marriage because the society is still conservative, although it is gradually changing. (Source: Straits Times, 5 June 2015)
When asked whether the Singapore Government would remove Section 377A of the Penal Code as a symbol of change in the country, PM Lee said “this is a society which is not that liberal on these matters. Attitudes have changed, but I believe if you have a referendum on the issue today, 377A would stand." (Source: TODAYonline, 2 March 2017)
I believe that, if that is the case, the government should hold a referendum for citizens to vote on whether they are ready to accept same-sex marriage, similar to what Australia did recently.
