About SAFE -
Supporting, AFfirming & Empowering our lgbtQ friends and family

Provides a support network where parents, family members and friends of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender people and those who are questioning their sexuality can come for information and resources, learn from accepting families, share stories and experiences, keep communication channels open, and most of all to build strong and close relationships with loved ones. With these activities, SAFE hopes to promote a society with a healthy respect for human diversity that will in turn build up the well-being of all gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and questioning people.

Posted by: Plume
Communicating With People You Love
Speaker: Mr Alan Yeo, Counsellor

It has been said that we often treat the ones we love with the least amount of kindness. Is that true? Or is it perhaps more true that we are just less careful with our words and how we say it?

Come to Pelangi Pride Centre (PPC) this November and learn ways to better communicate with partners, family members and friends. Learn tips on how to let the ones you love know that you care about them, in a basic but difficult activity: communication.

Topics Covered include:
  • I Hear You... Are You Listening To Me?
  • Fighting the Good Fight
  • In Praise of our Partners
  • Being Your own Best Friend
  • Question & Answer Session
