Singapore’s Minister for Education has said that LGBT+ people do not experience discrimination at work, in housing or in education – despite the fact that gay sex is still criminalised. Minister Ong Ye Kung was speaking at the annual Singapore Summit when he was asked how the country could be more inclusive towards people of different sexual orientations. Today Singapore reports that he said it was in the country’s DNA to be inclusive, but added: “The fact is they [LGBT+ people] live in Singapore peacefully, no discrimination at work, housing (and) education. They go about their lives.” He went on to say that it was an issue of “social mores and societal values” and that the government will “leave it to society to decide over time” about what direction they should take on LGBT+ rights.
