One more day to Pink Dot 2012!

Got your PINK outfit ready? Don’t forget to bring your Pink Torch and pack your picnic baskets! This is the fourth year that Singaporeans and PRs are coming to form the Pink Dot in support of the freedom to love – and we are all so excited about tomorrow!

The Pink Dot Concert kicks off at 630pm with performances from T’ang Quartet, Jack & Rai, Pink Dot Ambassadors Kumar, Sharon Au and Lim Yu-Beng, King Kong Jane, Pam Oei, and the cast of La Cage Aux Folles! Then, as day turns to dusk, the crowd will gather to form the pink dot. (To our foreign friends, we are sorry, but according to the park’s rules and regulations we have to invite you to the observation deck at this point.)

This is the first time Pink Dot is happening at night (we can’t wait to see pictures!).We are on Instagram (PinkDotSG) so follow us for pictures and updates during the day.

Whether it’s your first time going, or your fourth year – bring your friends, family, and pets to Pink Dot 2012. Meet new friends, find old friends, but above all, let’s celebrate a more open, inclusive, and LGBT-friendly Singapore. Make a stand against fear and ignorance. Come support the freedom to love.

See you there!

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.”
