Walk This Way: Queer Heritage Walk of Chinatown - 23 June 2019
What do you know about the queer heritage of Chinatown? Now is your chance to find out!Join us for a privately organised walk of Chinatown, highlighting some of the locations that were (and still are) significant in Singapore's queer history over the decades. When this was organised for the first time at Pink Fest 2018, it sold out within hours, so hurry!
What?We will be taking a leisurely 1.2 km walk guided by Oogachaga executive director, Leow Yangfa. You are invited to engage and share your own experiences of Chinatown - its queer and cultural heritage, or any other snippets of trivia you may have collected from your own sources.
If you're new to Chinatown and its queer heritage, you're most welcome to ask questions, which we will try our best to answer.
The meeting point will be disclosed to registered participants only.
Why?We're organising this because we believe that as part of Singapore's LGBTQ+ community, we need to be aware of our own heritage, and where better to start than Chinatown, an area already steeped in history and multi-cultural significance.
Who?This walk is organised by Oogachaga, as part of Pink Fest, and in collaboration with community partners. Everyone is welcome to register, with no restrictions on sexual orientation, gender identity, nationality, ethnicity, or ability (the route is wheelchair-accessible). The commentary will be conducted in English.
Why the registration fee?
