Sayoni is proud to present the Sayoni Queer Women Survey, 2010. This survey is aimed at queer, lesbian, bisexual and transgender women living in Singapore, to gather essential information about the community, in terms of
1. Age, racial and religious composition
2. Educational and career background, and financial status
3. Social framework, in relation to their sexual orientation
4. Personal/Emotional status, in relation to their sexual orientation
5. Feedback, on Sayoni and on the community
We appeal to you to take this survey, if you happen to belong to the target group. Just five minutes of your time can help us learn how to better help you and the community as a whole, as well as serve as a record of progress throughout the years.
All information, once collected and analysed, will be made publicly available.
Please be reassured that this survey is completely anonymous. Individual responses will not be revealed, and will not be traceable to the individual user.
Please help spread the word around, to your queer female friends. We aim to capture people from all social strata in this survey.

The Anniversary Party is the highlight of our year, for sure, as we let down our hair and party like it has yet been another successful eventful year for us. Each year, we have grown and changed. Each year, we have gained new family members and gotten to more milestones, and each year, we honour the women that make it all possible. Ladies and gentlemen, you are invited to the Sayoni Third Anniversary Party: Homecoming.
Sayoni Summer Camp is a 3-day/2-nights camp specifically for queer women in or around Singapore. We will be having our first run on 1st – 3rd May 2009.
We aim to provide a fun-filled and meaningful experience for all campers. Our goal is to promote self-development and growth, with a focus on encouraging campers’ self-exploration and understanding of their relationship with the world around them.
At SSC ‘09, expect to be transported to a beautiful beachside resort in Indonesia. Away from the bustle of city life, enjoy indoor and outdoor activities including workshops and water games. Challenge your body and engage your mind with a series of activities – surrounded by a great bunch of queer women and Sayonites committed to your well-being.

Sayoni proudly presents Sayoni Queer Women Survey 2008 Report (Singapore).
1.To gain some perspective on the actual needs of queer women, and what we can do about them
2.To provide free and accessible information to researchers, and act as a starting point for further research into the field
3.To ameliorate the dire lack of information on queer women in Singapore. Currently, there is no proper understanding of how the women’s queer community functions, other than biased and disjointed personal views.
The survey is broken down into five main aspects. Questions in each category are stream-lined and standardised for easy answering, by presenting most of the questions as rating questions where possible.
2. Family, Friends and Work
Questions on how out the respondent is in their various social circles, how this group has reacted to the information, and the respondent’s intention to come out to that particular group.
Questions on a personal level relating to sexual orientation. Probes how the respondents come to realise their sexuality, different aspects of personal identity, and how their sexuality has affected them. Also includes information on relationships of respondents.
Questions to ascertain the financial status of queer women as a community – on income, occupation and industry, housing and car ownership.
5. Feedback on Sayoni and the community
Take note that the answers to these questions with the exception of two, are not presented in this report as they are meant for internal feedback.
This survey was not carried out with a null hypothesis in mind, and much of the information contained in this report is processed descriptive statistics. Where possible, averages and trends have been pre-computed, and presented along with a broad analysis of the data. This year, the data is presented in a much more visual format, as opposed to raw numbers in the
pilot run of 2006.
In the report of 2006, the data was broken down across Age, Ethnicity and Religion, as it is believed that these three different aspects affect the average queer woman in her views and social situation with respect to her sexuality. This year, due to the significant changes in methodology and presentation, we have decided to omit the comparison by Ethnicity and Religion, as the representation for minority ethnic groups is not high enough to allow accurate comparisons.
