Indranee Rajah on LGBTQ+ speakers, artists and performers at IHL events(Updated: )
Singapore’s institutes of higher learning (IHLs) should provide a common space and neutral ground for open discussions and civil discourse, said Second Minister for Education Indranee Rajah. Replying to Parliamentary questions on Tuesday (Nov 5), she said IHLs need to be respectful of Singapore's wider social norms and laws, and exercise appropriate judgement and sensitivity when dealing with potential socially divisive issues. IHLs have the autonomy to manage the activities on campus, such as deciding which artists, speakers and performers to invite, she said.
