queer-friendly venues 

As a crowded city, space comes at a premium in Singapore. We know of a small number of LGBTQ-inclusive spaces and LGBTQ-friendly commercial businesses, and we welcome you to contact us if you know of more to add to this list. Please note that inclusion on this list does not mean we endorse the business or commercial activity.
