A new height of 21,000 people came together to celebrate ‘Home’, carpeting Speaker’s Corner at Hong Lim Park with iridescent pink lights.

 

Singapore, June 29, 2013 – Marking its milestone fifth edition, Pink Dot tonight saw an unprecedented 21,000 families, friends andmembers of Singapore’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community, taking a stand in support of the Freedom to Love. Carpeting Speaker’s Corner at Hong Lim Park with a profusion of pink lights from torches and mobile phones, this was the strongest-yet turnout, with 6,000 more participants compared to last year’s 15,000.

With the theme of ‘Home’, partly in tribute to the heartfelt national song composed by Dick Lee, this year’s Pink Dot – the second night event of its kind – continues efforts begun in 2009 to celebrate inclusivity and diversity among Singapore’s straight and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender … Read More »

It’s the people that make a home.

Since 2011, Pink Dot has welcomed LGBT-friendly groups in Singapore to Hong Lim Park to make one big happy family. This Saturday, we have 21 community groups gathered under one roof. Most of these groups are run by volunteers who give their time and energy to making the world a better, warmer place.

Making your own pink lights!

Posted on June 3rd, by Pink Dot Sg in Latest News, Pink Dot 2013. 1 Comment

1. With white LED torch light
LED torchlights can be bought at places like Daiso, Army Market, Home-Fix, NTUC, 7-11, etc.

Pink cellophane paper can be bought at stationery shops like Popular ($1.80), Art Friend, Spotlight, etc. Remember to check that the light created by the cellophane paper is really pink, by testing with your phone’s LED light or by bringing your torchlight along.

Either cut a small piece of cellophane paper and wrap it around the torchlight with a rubber band.

Test the torchlight by shining it on white surface. Try not to look into it as it may hurt your eyes.

2. LED light of mobile phones
Download an app that allows the LED light to be turned on manually. For Android:https://play.google.com/store/search?q=led&c=apps For iPhone http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/led-light-for-iphone-4-free/id379753015?mt=8

Use adhesive tape to tape a small piece of pink cellophane paper in front of the LED light of the mobile phone.
