    Human Relations

    A couple of days ago, I got this e-mail from Prof Khoo Hoon Eng (the mother of two gay sons and co-founder of SAFE Singapore) :

    Hi all,

    I just discovered that my story in SQ21 is supplementary reading for
    this NUS course called Human Relations:

    I think this is great as I hope that the students would then read all
    your other stories (and maybe we can sell more copies) too since they
    are so interesting! I certainly hope that they are not photocopying
    just the few pages of my story!

    Also, I hope someone in NUS will one day be able to make SQ21 required
    reading for a course :)

    Hoon Eng's story is also up on the SAFE Singapore website. They're looking for more stories from parents of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender parents. Feel free to write to them.

    I'm rather puzzled, you know, that people keep on visiting this blog. I've been horribly tardy about getting a scanner to scan in the whole of the New Year's article. But since you're reading already, I might as well be mercenary and advertise the new play I'm doing for Toy Factory Theatre Ensemble about a scandalous bisexual Singaporean woman who wasn't afraid to talk about it over ten years ago... Annabel Chong.

    I've started a blog for my upcoming play, 251 at http://251play.blogspot.com. And the press has been reporting it - but sigh, they didn't talk about my queer identity reasons for doing the play.

    Sorry, I just hate to see a blog of mine go inactive.
