People Like Us (PLU) (Chinese:我等之辈), is the main gay equality lobby group in Singapore. Having been twice rejected by the government board which approves or prohibits organisations, the Registrar of Societies, it is now in its third incarnation as “PLU3”. The term “PLU” has also gradually become slang for “homosexual” amongst members of Singapore's and Malaysia's gay subculture.

PLU is an informal association of LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) and heterosexual allies in Singapore that was formed in 1993. An initial application to the Registrar of Societies for official recognition of the group was submitted by 10 members, two of whom were heterosexual, on November 7, 1996, only to be rejected without reason on April 8, 1997. PLU subsequently submitted an appeal to the Minister for Home Affairs and the Prime Minister, garnering another rejection in May 1997. A re-founding meeting in 2003 gathered together over 100 participants, but questions remained about future potentials for recognition and strategy. According to Joseph Lo, PLU aspires to be a space were GLB Singaporeans can “come together to help and support each other,” leading the organization to coordinate discussion forums and social events for community building.
