I joined some friends at Hong Lim Park yesterday for the first time for the Pink Dot event where most people were dressed in Pink to show their love, friendship, understanding and support from the bottom of their hearts.
Took lotsa photos which I am glad to share here.
With various cultural performances to heartwarming sharing, the crowd was very involved and participative.

What was experienced: Performances, freebies, and the formation of a huge human pink dot (a photograph of which will be taken from a vantage point nearby). This is a 100% legit and legal event. It is NOT a protest, rally or demonstration, but a simple gathering of like-minded Singaporeans.
What is the objective of pinkdot.sg
Everyone should have the freedom to love, regardless of sexual orientation. But fear, ignorance and prejudice often stand in the way. The first step to overcoming these barriers is for open-minded segments of society to come together. Pink Dot is a platform for individuals, organisations and businesses to identify themselves as advocates of a more inclusive, more loving Singapore. If you too feel that LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) people deserve to express their love just like any other Singaporean, you can like Pink Dot on Facebook. Together, let’s find ways to let the freedom to love prevail.
