DJ Big Kid, Selena Tan and Brendon Fernandaz tell Pink Dot why they support The Freedom To Love
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. Every single Singaporean deserves a chance in his/her pursuit of happiness, and not to have such a basic human freedom taken away.”
“How wonderful it is that Singaporeans have come out in support of LOVE! I believe that there is nothing greater than love and I am proud to support Pink Dot in it’s pursuit of love for ALL. A love that chooses not to discriminate but to embrace each other as fellow human beings with equal rights to live as people of love. To share our little island and indeed, our world, as brothers and sisters. I hope that this is something we can all be a part of and that we can all live each day in celebration of LOVE.”
“Do you have someone to love, who loves you back?
If you do, isn’t it wonderful, and don’t you wish everyone could have what you have?
If you don’t, do you want it, for yourself and those you care about?
Some things are the same no matter who or what we are. Everybody needs love.
I want to be at Pink Dot because I believe love is a right. A human right.”
