PRIZE - Rascals Prize (People Like Us) - Singapore (Deadline: Jan 2009)

People Like Us (PLU) is the oldest homosexual rights and activist organisation in Singapore, and the inaugural Rascals Prize for Lesbian/Gay/BisexualTransgender/Queer research on Singapore is now open for entries.

The prize is valued at $S2,000 (about $AUD 2,000) for the best piece of research in any of Singapore's four official languages (English, Mandarin, Malay, Tamil).

The deadline for submissions is January 2009. Please contact PLU directly for further information: pluadmin @ gmail.com

People Like Us is a Singapore gay and lesbian group focussed on advocacy and public education. It is an informal group since the Registrar of Societies refused to grant registration in 1997, and in 2004 when we applied a second time.

As an informal group, it does not yet have any firm membership, but a feel for the numbers of interested persons can be seen from the fact that there are over 2,300 members in PLU’s email discussion list SiGNeL.
