Do you support the freedom of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people to love? Then show your support by joining our smart mob at Hong Lim Park on 16 May, 4.30pm!

This is NOT a protest nor a parade, just a simple call for open-minded Singaporeans to come together to form a pink dot, of which aerial photographs will be taken. This pink dot is a celebration of diversity and equality, and a symbol of Singapore’s more inclusive future.

Venue: The field at Hong Lim Park
Date & Time: May 16 (Sat), 4.30pm
What to wear: Pink (caps, hats, glasses, sunglasses and accessories are recommended)
What to bring: Anyone who supports the freedom of LGBT Singaporeans to love

What to expect:
Pink umbrellas will be provided with a donation; the human pink dot will be formed by around 5pm and a photograph will be taken from a vantage point nearby.

    Yes,we should Love N accept all people regardless of their gender but it does not mean we will and can accept their sexual preference.
    Call me old fashion if you like but I still believe in the Male/Female relationship in a family.
    No matter how Pinkdot phrase it or market the concept, one things is irrefutable, SAME SEX sexual relationship is wrong, immoral, filthy,
    going against nature.It is just not right.

    Fashion, old or new, has nothing to do with it.

    We are created either to be male or female. Why go against nature? Therefore Male and Female are meant for procreation from day 1. Your pinkdot will only lead to more health and social problem. I am a normal person who support the law of nature. But we are called conservative!!?? Those who go against the law of nature are called liberal??!! In fact they are not liberated, they are just rebels against the law of nature. While I will treat such person as human beings, I cannot condone their lifestyle as homosexual or lesbian.

    Well, since you said we should not go against nature. Don’t you know one being LGBT is natural? Why you never thought of why aren’t you one of them? Try being one yourself. The reason is you can’t! If you’re so against of it, why cares coming here again and again? You never knows that LGBT might just be living as happy as the straights and they might be happier!

    I feel using Pink for this campaign to relate to Singapore is undesirable. I don’t like the way it is marketed.

    Having said that, I am not against LGBT individuals. But I feel that this has been overdone. I had stay in San Francisco for a year and Atlanta for another, and I had lots of LGBT friends, and I enjoy their accompany, views and ideas. Many of them are well-educated, intelligent and they are happy for who they are. They lead a low profile life which they enjoyed, and use the rainbow flag to identify among themselves and their community. I can’t understand why Pink must be used here to relate strongly to Singapore? Why can’t the international rainbow flag be used as a symbol for your campaign? I feel the used of Pink and the way the campaign is marketed is very misleading!

    Dear Anonymous at May 13, 2009 10:24pm,

    Do you mind telling us how it should be ‘marketed’? I don’t suppose any priest would tell his congregation to stop hating gays eh?

    How is this overdone? Why can’t Pinkdot market itself? Compared to the number of bank commercials and ads we get everyday, Pinkdot is nothing. Overdone? You got to be kidding!

    Why must Pinkdot use the international rainbow flag? What’s wrong with pink? You got a problem with pink? You sound like a goddamn gay hater to me. Lots of LGBT friends. SURE.

    It’s pretenders like you who make me sick. You stayed in San Francisco for a year? Judging by your English it’s more likely you stayed in Afghanistan.

    It's UNNATURAL, IMMORAL, FILTHY& WRONG to:
    —————————————

    -DISCRIMINATE against anyone, anytime, anywhere-period!

    -IMPOSE your own deluded beliefs or your "god" RELIGION on better informed individuals

    -DEPRIVE others the right to be happy just becos U yourself are UNHAPPY
    -be a BRAIN-DEAD non progressive, despite attending basic kindergarten; a DISGRACE if U claim U had traces of tertiary exposure

    -JUDGE others without even understanding their plight

    -REFUSE to understand nor accept what is NATURAL to others (just becos u were born into a family rats does not mean others born into a family of LIONS needs to go to your level)

    -FLATTER yourselves to think that GLBT people need your approvals or blessings to lead healthy, successful, happy and meaningful lives

    And finally, get a LIFE yourself. All these HATE & LIES show you don't have ONE and are STUCK. And my goodness, u don't even know it!
    Now, that's truly SAD!

    Jesus was a indeed a “gay” man.
    Matches anyone? ;)

    Food for Thought;

    The Bible contains six admonishments to homosexuals and 362 admonishments to heterosexuals. That doesn’t mean that God doesn’t love heterosexuals. It’s just that they need more supervision.~Lynn Lavner

    War. Rape. Murder. Poverty. Recession. Equal rights for GLBT people. Guess which one our bigots is protesting? ~The Value of Families

    That word “lesbian” sounds like a disease. And straight men know because they’re sure that they’re the cure. ~Denise McCanles

    Soldiers who are not afraid of guns, bombs, capture, torture or death say they are afraid of homosexuals. Clearly we should not be used as soldiers; we should be used as weapons. ~Letter to the editor, The Advocate

    The world is not divided into sheeps and goats. Not all things are black nor all things white. It is a fundamental of taxonomy that nature rarely deals with discrete categories. Only the human mind invents categories and tries to force facts into separated pigeon-holes. The living world is a continuum in each and every one of its aspects. The sooner we learn this concerning sexual behavior the sooner we shall reach a sound understanding of the realities of sex. ~Alfred Kinsey, Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, 1948

    I’m a supporter of gay rights. And not a closet supporter either. From the time I was a kid, I have never been able to understand attacks upon the gay community. There are so many qualities that make up a human being… by the time I get through with all the things that I really admire about people, what they do with their private parts is probably so low on the list that it is irrelevant.
    ~Paul Newman

    If Michelangelo had been straight, the Sistine Chapel would have been wallpapered. ~Robin Tyler

    Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself. ~Harvey Fierstein

    If God had wanted me otherwise, He would have created me otherwise. ~Johann von Goethe

    A successful Engineering Professor is treating her husband, a loan officer, to dinner for finally agreeing to her pleas to shave off his scraggly beard he grew on vacation. His favorite restaurant is a casual place where they both feel comfortable in slacks and cotton/polyester-blend golf shirts. But, as always, she wears the gold and pearl pendant he gave her the day her divorce decree with her ex was final.

    They’re laughing over their menus because they know he always ends up diving into a giant plate of ribs but she won’t be talked into anything more fattening than shrimp.

    Quiz:
    How many biblical prohibitions are they violating? Take a guess….

    Well, wives are supposed to be ‘submissive’ to their husbands (I Peter 3:1).
    And all women are forbidden to teach men (I Timothy 2:12), wear gold or pearls (I Timothy 2:9) or dress in clothing that ‘pertains to a man’ (Deuteronomy 22:5).
    Shellfish and pork are definitely out (Leviticus 11:7, 10) as are usury (Deuteronomy 23:19), shaving(Leviticus 19:27) and clothes of more than one fabric (Leviticus 19:19).
    And since the Bible do not recognize divorce, they’re committing adultery, which carries the rather harsh penalty of death by stoning (Deuteronomy 22:22).

    So why are they having such a good time?

    Probably because they wouldn’t think of worrying about rules that seem absurd, anachronistic or – at best – unrealistic. Yet this same modern-day couple could easily be among the millions of “god-fearing self professed christians” who never hesitate to lean on the Bible to justify their own discriminatory anti-gay attitudes. ~ Voice of Reason

    Mr Wong said: "The government was not going to be pressured into changing its position on homosexuality".

    Wong stressed that Singapore remains a basically conservative society where the conventional, heterosexual family is the norm – but with space for homosexuals to live their private lives.

    So lead your own private life and stop influencing people around you!
