Hi there, my name is Sean Foo and I'm the founder of Dear Straight People - a leading LGBTQ+ publication that reaches over 300,000 people a month.

Over the past three years, Dear Straight People has:

  • Published more than 60 different coming out stories of openly queer Asians ranging from an openly gay pastor to a same-sex family.
  • Produced a range of videos ranging from an interview with a mother of two gay sons to a viral documentary on a gay Malay couple accepted by their family.
  • Collaborated with community groups in fund-raising efforts such as producing this video for Singapore's only LGBT counselling centre and this photo album for a sex worker rights group.
  • Provided a platform for queer people to voice their opinions and tell their stories.

Why Dear Straight People Is Turning To Patreon

Dear Straight People may be well established in Singapore. But it has the potential to become a powerful and sustainable community platform in Asia that serves as a bridge between the straight and queer communities.

In order for Dear Straight People to achieve this aim, it needs to build a pool of content creators so as to create quality content on a regular basis. That is where Patreon comes in. 

All of our Patreon earnings will be given to our pool of content creators. So the more funding we receive, the more content Dear Straight People produces.


I believe that the work that Dear Straight People does is important. And if you've read this far, hopefully you do too.
