Singapore has some of the world’s strictest anti-drug laws. So trying to stem the growing use of recreational drugs in the LGBTI community is very challenging. The small nation criminalizes homosexual sex and there are no anti-discrimination laws in place to protect LGBTI people. In the past five years LGBTI advocates, working very closely with the community have noticed the worrying trend. Many have tried to provide counselling and support services, including Leow Yangfa who runs the LGBTI organization, Oogachaga. He and another advocates have had to try and get creative in reaching out to LGBTI people.
