Pink Dot Sg 2012

The closest thing that Singapore has to a pride parade. It’s simply a gathering of the LGBT community and their family/friends as a show of solidarity. It started in 2009 with only 2,500 participants and has since grown exponentially to reach a record 15,000 participants in 2012. I have never attended any of the past 4 Pink Dot events, mostly because I’m still deep in the closet, but also because, coincidentally, I’m usually overseas when these are held. Because it is Singapore, this is a much more subdued affair, with love as its main theme. No half-naked men running around or any of those risqué stuff you usually see at the pride parades. I hope to attend, possibly next year. But for now, I’m just glad there is a growing acceptance of the LGBT community, and this helps a lot in allowing us to love openly.

From the Pink Dot Sg website:

Pink Dot Sg is a non-profit movement started by a group of individuals who care deeply about the place that LGBT Singaporeans call home. It is a group for everyone, straight and gay, who support the belief that everyone deserves the freedom to love. With openness and acceptance, we hope to bring LGBT Singaporeans closer to their family and friends. Pink Dot stands for an open, inclusive society within our Red Dot, where sexual orientation represents a feature, not a barrier.
