DJ Big Kid, Johnson Ong:

“Gay Singaporeans have contributed to the development and success of Singapore as much as straight Singaporeans and must have the same rights and freedoms accorded to them. This includes the freedom to love and demonstrate that love to someone of the same gender. To a gay person, this is something that is not determined by choice, but is an emotion that is as natural as breathing and eating or drinking. Therefore, I sincerely ask all Singaporeans, regardless of their sexual orientation or religious affiliations, to take a stand and reject any unjust law or policy that discriminates against otherwise perfectly law-abiding citizens.

Pink Dot is proud to announce our ambassadors, radio DJ Rosalyn Lee and actors Timothy Nga and Neo Swee Lin. Read on to find out why they support The Freedom To Love.

Timothy Nga
“I have very good friends who are gay and I don’t think they, or anyone else should have to say sorry to anyone for the way they are. Sometimes, we need to stand up for what we believe in, and yet, be open and inclusive. Pink Dot does that, and that is why I’m a part of it.”

Rosalyn Lee
“Here are a few things I feel very strongly about/believe in life: reform+second chances, inspiring the youth and finally the freedom to love.

I don’t believe in equal rights all the time (eg: how much one earns) but when it comes to the basic human emotion, to love, I feel that … Read More »
