[This note is sent as part of the Facilitators experiment, to maximize the effectiveness of discussions at the IETF-Discussion mailing list]

As this thread started with the concerns express during the plenary about Singapore as a meeting venue, I wanted to summarize the arguments, and refocus and redirect the discussion:

Several details on both the letter and the practicality of the Singapore law that discriminates agains LGBTQ, and its implications, followed these community-expressed concerns. A number of suggestions, recommendations, and additional pieces of information about other countries and locations were also shared.

The IAOC and its Meetings Committee acknowledged the issue, and shared a two-point plan at [1].

Meeting venue selection and its associated criteria is naturally a relevant and most important topic for the community. At this point, the most effective channel for providing input and discussion is at the MTGVENUE mailing list [2] [3], following the MTGVENUE BoF. That would ensure feedback and requirements are appropriately captured.
