June wanted to empower the community and make it sustainable such that there is no more need for The T Project by next generation.
Founded by June Chua and her late sister Alicia Chua in 2014, The T Project is the first and only social service for the transgender community in Singapore. They realised that there were many gaps in the existing social service sectors, which did not address the needs of Singapore’s transgender community. They first decided to open a shelter that would serve as a temporary safe haven for anyone who was homeless in the community.
Since then, June has gone on to a broad range of outreach and advocacy events. In Singapore, she has spoken at numerous panels and conferences, and collaborated with local educational institutions and social workers.
