http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/article-12-campaign-for-lgbt-workplace-equality Please donate by clicking on the above link. Commitment to equality is a precious thing. It lets our children know that they can be whatever they want. Equality is the engine of growth and progress. Without equality the world would never have had Einstein (developmental delay), Mozart (autism), Stephen Hawking (motor neuron disease), or Lee Kuan Yew (dyslexia). In Singapore we pride ourselves on our commitment to people as our only resource. But in the shadows discrimination still exists. People are sacked, denied housing, or kept out of school. With each child who cannot get to school, each employee who is sacked, our potential for a better, more varied, more creative world lessens a bit. "Stop Hurting. Quit Labelling" is a campaign to improve the law on discrimination. It will challenge employment discrimination in court in the hope that a clear legal position will emerge that guides employers in their employment practices. Background Last year, Lawrence Wee brought a suit against his former employer Robinson's, a well-known chain store in Singapore. He was harassed into leaving his job because Lawrence is gay. Concerned that the law is ambiguous, Lawrence is now asking the High Court to judge whether Article 12 of our Constitution, which guarantees all persons equal protection of the law should also apply to people on the basis of their sexuality. Article 12(2) states that "...there shall be no discrimination against citizens of Singapore on the ground only of religion, race, descent or place of birth in any law..." Lawrence, who worked at Robinson's for six years before he was sacked, believes that people should be allowed to prove their worth at work, without fear that an immutable characteristic does not become a millstone around their neck.
