COUNTDOWN TO PINK DOT 2011!
SAVE THE DATE: 18 JUNE 2011

Hi everyone!

We’ve been a busy little red dot over the last few weeks, haven’t we! Seeing Singaporeans swept up in the heat of the General Elections and having a say in the country they love – it was so nice for us to see Singapore come together as one.

Now, we hope that everyone will come together again for PINK DOT 2011 to celebrate the freedom to love.

If you believe that Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender people deserve to express their love just like any other Singaporean, come joins us to form a giant PINK dot on June 18, and help us make this statement!

That’s right – in exactly ONE MONTH, Hong Lim Park will play host to a wonderful array of exciting activities, including performances from our PinkDot Ambassadors, the Dim Sum Dollies; Singapore’s favourite Beng, Sebastian Tan; as well as Dave Tan from local indie band Electrico!

Follow our twitter account @PinkDotSG or ‘Like’ us on Facebook to keep in the loop.

TV host and writer Anita Kapoor, shot to fame as the clear favourite winner of a Discovery travel host search and has not looked back since. Insatiably curious and possessing a natural wit, this former magazine editor has explored the world for Discovery TLC, AXN, Lonely Planet, Channel News Asia and OKTO, and Starwood Asia Pacific channels, forever on a quest to pioneer the non-conformist stories and locations, especially to connect with the provocateurs who move their worlds.

She is an ambassador for the Singapore chapter of Habitat for Humanity, and her advocacies include Willing Hearts which feeds Singapore’s marginalised, Magic Bus which empowers childrens’ lives in India through sports, and A Single Love which supports single parents. She has also spoken at TEDx Singapore Women 2012 on ‘Female to Female Misogyny in the First World’.

As a Pink Dot ambassador this year, Anita hopes to extend her voice on issues of equality as she firmly believes that everyone deserves equal rights, regardless of the hand they have been dealt in life.

“I see the rights of LGBT people as human rights, really. Everyone deserves to be treated equally – in society, in employment and in the eyes of the law. I believe that as fellow human beings, it’s important to stand together – to speak up for one another when we have the ability and opportunity to do so.”

Anita continues: “There’s a lot of work to be done, a lot of people we need to reach out to. Every one of us has the capacity to be a hero to someone else. I hope more Singaporeans will join us at this year’s Pink Dot. Because together, we can make this a more inclusive society for everyone.”
