What better way to spend the long Good Friday and Easter weekend than to spread some love? This was exactly what our ambassadors Sharon Au, Lim Yu-Beng and Kumar did – touring the various clubs over the weekend to share their support for the freedom to love.

It was a rollickin’ four nights at Play, Taboo, Butter Factory and Avalon for the ambassadors as they mingled with club-goers and shared their reasons for supporting Pink Dot 2012. The clubs were packed with clubbers and supporters who welcomed the news of the new sunset event, culminating in the formation of the first-ever Night Pink Dot.

After the launch of the Pink Dot Ambassadors’ Video 2012, Sharon, Yu-Beng, and Kumar hosted quizzes to give away some cuddly Pink Dot plushies! To all those who snapped up our cute plushies – a big THANK YOU! All proceeds will go towards funding Pink Dot.

The Pink Dot team would like to thank all those who have made this launch weekend a blast and a success. We had fun, and we certainly hope you did too!

Don’t forget to save the date – 30 June 2012, 6pm at Hong Lim Park. See you there with your pink lights!

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.”
