TODAY live webinar: Attitudes on LGBTQ issues
National surveys have shown that Singaporeans have become more liberal towards LGBTQ issues over the past five years and this mindset shift is mainly driven by the young. But despite growing acceptance, the majority are still opposed to things such as gay sex and gay marriage. As more young, liberal Singaporeans take up space in the public sphere, how will society’s consensus over LGBTQ issues evolve? Watch the instalment from the TODAY Live webinar series that took place on Friday (Nov 19).
Guests on the panel:
- Yasmine Yahya, TODAY Supervising Editor
- Sam Jo, Co-host of The SG Boys podcast
- Mathew Mathews, Principal Research Fellow at the Institute of Policy Studies

For the second year running, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) has used somewhat unconventional methods to educate young people about respecting animals. During an event on Saturday (May 27) it offered experiential learning elements like shock collars, dog cages, and virtual reality simulations to let participants experience abuse from an animal's perspective.
