    Had a great afternoon. Thank you very much for organising this. It is very well organised, and people did not litter much and cleaned-up the area after they are done.

    I am straight and appreciate the inclusiveness of the LGBT community for such healthy and pro-family events.

    Wished I was there.
    Wanted to avoid the massive media coverage.

    Still in the closet, you see.
    Doesn’t help I have a homophobic boss. In the civil service :(

    I’m happy! 1 small step towards acceptance! :)))

    I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation to Neo Swee Lin and her dad for doing so much for the event and the community. When a senior gentleman seated next to my group was distributing some cookies, only then I learnt that he was the father of Neo Swee Lin. He had taken the trouble to be with the group and volunteered himself for distributing the coookies made by Neo Swee Lin!

    Thank you! We all hope that it would even be a better event next year.

    this is incredible. looks like the organisation work was done better than our opposition parties here. wasn’t even advertised in the papers?

    I cried yesterday night after I reached home. I have never felt so touched a moment like this before. I went there alone, like a quiet closeted guy but joy and tears well up in my eyes when people there were so warm and friendly towards me. I have never felt so homely before, even within my family at home. This is truly an event imagineable that finally came true. Now I can feel proud of myself being a pink dot that forms part of bigger world. Looking forward to such event again in future. Very rejuvenating event for the gay and lesbian and for those who love them.

    Good job to the people who organized and help up at The Pink Dot Event! I was there with 3 of my friends and had a Great Time of being part of a FAMILY! For those people who didn’t attend and wish to help up, PLEASE DONATE! I personally donated $100. I know it just tiny amount, but I know every cents will help – for all the time and effort of our FRIENDS!

    Thanks organiser for organising the event. It's well-organized and soul-touching. I'm truly truly proud to be part of this beautiful, meaningful & memorable event. Look forward to the next pinkdot!

  25. Concerned Parent says:

    I notice teenagers performing during the event. This is beyond any informal OB markers. You are impinging on our society by forcing our children your lifestyle! I shall report to the relevant authorities – and the irrelevant ones too.

  26. fnhh says:

    luckily I don’t see any monster of fear and ignorance running around biting people like a crazy dog during the pinkdot event, unlike what I see in some of the comments here. We should have more pinkdots to spread love and eradicate these monsters of fear and ignorance.

  27. humph says:

    Yay for pinkdot! Yay for pinkdog!

    Was touched, am still touched by the gestures of my fellow Singaporeans. Heartwarming to see many parents, concerned that their kids fall prey to wrong values like bigotry, bring them along to healthy events like this to educate them.

    Well done, Singapore!

    Wow.. and this wasn’t even advertised in the mainstream media! KUDOS to the organisers, whoever you are, for honouring love with such ingenuity and dedication.

    Let’s make an even bigger pink dot next year!!

  29. bernium says:

    I’m so glad many parents brought their kids to this family friendly, healthy event to educate them and open their minds. I saw lots of strollers and two adorable kids playing with balloons, out of the many children.

    I really enjoyed being a part of the HISTORIC PINK DOT! Well done to the organizers!! I will donate! :)

    the “mainstream media” was too scared to cover this. too bad because personally I think the internet is way bigger than the “mainstream media” nowadays – which would just collapse without the internet. This just means the masses will move online for their information and news.

    my partner and i couldn’t be there as we were afraid of media coverage or appearing in pictures. we are surrounded by very homophobic people and colleagues. just didn’t dare to risk it. i thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for this wonderful event. thank you organisers and supporters (especially the straights).

    hopefully more people like us will be brave enough to participate in future pinkdot events =)

    give everyone a chance to love please!

    a big thank you to the organizers! and also thanks to Alex Au (Yawing bread) for spreading the news. only learnt about the event couple of days before the event while surfing Mr Au’s webpage : ) Very GAY to be part of history. didn’t see familiar faces (where were my totally out, partially out GLBT friends and associates? maybe fear of being captured by camera?)

    i tuned in CNA the next day and the next next day, no story was ran at all, while ST ran a short picture story, ok, better than nothing. maybe after the AWARE saga, editorial has to take a more “cautious” approach? but running the story not sure whether will invite another round of attacks and name-calling by those who just cannot try to be a little bit more compassionate and understanding?

    m glad to see hetrosexual couples with kids there.. yes, should let kids learn that there is more than one type of people in this world. dun be an ostrich and pretend GLBT doesn’t exist!

    look forward to the next pink.dot

    SO MUCH THANKS to the good folks who organised this event. Your dedication has moved the hearts of many and I am sure, has helped many a soul feel less alone on our little island. Much love to you and to everyone who attended.
