    I think Pink Dot’s objectives are commendable. Funds are definitely needed to drive these initiatives. But how can we be assured, as a contributor, that funds donated are used for the right purposes?

    I think there is a group of people who are indiferent like me “not in a judgemental way” towards gays and gays activist who are neutral to their lifestyles.

    However these ongoing activities from repeal 377A, Aware Saga now pinkdot.sg etc whether soft approach or hard approach has finaly take its toll on people like us….

    That is enough lah….tolerance can become disgusted

    If you’re truly indifferent, you’d just switch the station, change the channel.

    Please keep your perverted lives out of the limelight. Get your parents to join in the event and ask them in the face if they are truly proud of you after that.

    Thank you, Pink Dot. You have no idea what this means to me and my brother. Please ignore all these bigoted comments. This is exactly what Singapore needs. This is about love. Some people will probably never get it, but there is absolutely no harm calling on the people who do. Looking forward to Sat!

    I think people who are against this event is missing the point. Pink Dot isn’t about a bunch of queers congregating together to propagate their agenda.

    It is about love, and having the freedom to love who you want to love, inregardless of race, gender, or religion.

    People out there might call us ‘perverts’ and be ‘disgusted’ with us, but just put yourself in our shoes. Do you seriously think we like to be called names and being judged for whom we choose to love?

    I really hope this Saturday’s event will allow the public to change the perception of Singapore’s GLBT community. We are not a bunch of queens who are trying to turn your son/daughter/sibling/neighbour gay. We are just a bunch of normal folks hoping that the society can accept us for who we are, and allow us to love those whom really matter.

    To Anonymous at 11:45 –

    Why don’t YOU come to Hong Lim and tell any of the gay people there in the face what you’ve just said here. And then go up to the parents, family members and friends who have shown up, look them in the eye, and ask them if they are proud.

    For those who are not pro this Saturday’s event at Hong Lim Park – why don’t you just SHUT UP and KEEP OUT. Nobody needs you there or any of your crappy comments.

    See you guys tmr, especially thankful for the straight ppl who will be turning up :)

    And to those bigots up there, this is not a gay event like you want to perceive. It’s a call for tolerance, and read the slogan please (it’s so BIG up there): support the freedom to love. 377A and Aware are all separate issues too so dont lump them all together and think we are ‘pushing our agenda’ or wadever *roll eyes* Next up, are you guys gonna say everyone support this (incl all the celebs) are pro-gay, since if you are not anti, you must be pro or gay. ha.

    After reading all these comments it only shows one thing. Deputy PM is rioght after all.

    Any pushing activity, whatever approach, agenda, whatever motive etc etc be it love or no love…..its the same common guys..

    There will be reaction from both sides…

    But who started it and for what, foe who to prove

    Keep the good work up Pink Dot!

    Those who oppose will always oppose. But this is only the start. Once they see that we are respectable and proud people who are able to contribute to society as well as them, and even better than them, then hopefully they will change their minds.

    If not, we are who we are. The whole of society will move on and we will see who will be left behind. :)

    It takes courage to organize such an big event, kudos.
    Everyone has a right to choose who they love and who they don’t. Let us be more tolerant towards each other and stop calling each other names, there’s no need to. Straight or not, we are all humans. Pls remember the Singapore Pledge that we recite every morning in school.
    To ppl who support pinkdot movement, let’s be tolerant toward ppl who are ignorant and those who choose to be ignorant. At least we do what we preach.

    No matter how you choose to look at how this event is so wonderful, don't forget that you are supporting & promoting same-sex relation which is absolutely abnormal.

  19. Anonymous says:

    Same-sex relationships are not abnormal. They are less common, doesn’t mean they are abnormal. Seriously, all you need is love.

    There’s nothing wrong or abnormal about promoting love.

    Thats a real lame attempt. No ones asking straight people to be gay. It seems that you for one are really easily swayed. You must have likes someone from the same sex and feel ashame of yourself. Excuse me. Gay guys. ARE STIL GUYS. HAHAHAHHA You have a really closed tiny little mind. :)

    Pink Dot Im really proud of you guys!
    Let the haters be haters they dont know a thing.

    MAN'S PRIMARY RIGHT is to be treated as what he is. The universe, not being a chaos, has laws and man is subject to them.
    Exploring the universe man discovers more and more of its laws, and, with each new law discovered, his freedom increases.

    For the laws of the universe are there all the time, and we are affected by them whether we know them or not. We do not need to know about Vitamin B to die of malnutrition for want of it, man's discovery of these laws is not the beginning of his subjection to them; on the contrary, once he knows what they are, he can learn how to co-operate with them, and by so co-operating increase his own freedom within. The utmost freedom for man lies in co-operation, obedience, harmony with the universe and its laws.

    So to you negative people out there, try and understand, put your brains into gear before you engaged your mouths or your fingers to type… the freedom to love, is the freedom to find a balance, the freedom of understanding. Stop using the government or law or any other political organization you can find, to fight something you haven't even begun to understand. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you…

    Thank you very much for creating this website and having the courage to organise this event. My humble person lives in a quite tolerant part of Germany. Nevertheless, my thoughts are with the people who do not have the same rights and the same freedoms as myself. Human Rights are an Ideal which is worth fighting for it. If you have the chance to visit Europe next, don't miss to participate in the Europride 2010 in Warsaw, Poland (still a homophob country..)

    I hope this will change soon. Never give up…no matter what people are saying or trying to push you back…push them back…because they don't have the rights to say to be gay is wrong… we are living in the 21 century and we shouldn't live in the 19th century…. i find it sad to read some comments stating that this organization is for nothing and so on…. you should be a shamed of yourself saying something negative against this organization…they have the balls to stand up to the system and say NO! this is wrong how you treat ppl or us….. i think some ppl should be taught about the human rights (AGAIN)… I would like to quote a human right article:

    Article 2.

    Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty.

    for those who dislike my comment it's their problem….i am a very straight forward person who will not hesitate saying things out loud…furthermore i would like to post a website where these people can develop their senses and their human rights…. :

    http://www.un.org/en/documents/udhr/

    since some gov. in asia they are saying (still today) they have a democratic system i must say… NO you still don't have…read the human rights articles again my dear politicians and the others who are against this beautiful organisation and against gay people.

    and yes i am student but i lived abroad a lot of years i have seen a lot and i have been through discrimination as well but it made me stronger and yes i am gay and gay people are all over the world they should be as well respected. that is all what i will say now.

    I WISH YOU ALL GOOD LUCK FOR THE FUTURE !!!

    NEVER GIVE UP !!!!

    Cheers,

    Kevin
