About Regardless Of Sexuality
Hosted by Senior Minister Of State Dr Janil Puthucheary, the documentary is part of an integral part of Channel News Asia’s ‘Regardless Of’ series, renowned for addressing challenging societal issues.
For the very first time on national TV, this documentary brought together members of the LGBT community, their parents, and religious leaders for an unfiltered discussion about the divisions that exist among them.
