Last year, 120 local companies stepped forward to support Pink Dot when 13 multinational companies were told they could no longer do so following an amendment of rules (pertaining to Speakers’ Corner where Pink Dot is held) which bars foreign-owned companies from sponsoring events held at Speakers’ Corner without a permit.

The 2018 campaign to support Pink Dot — celebrating its 10th edition this year — hopes to see even more companies from our Little Red Dot to join in and be a part of the movement that’s helping our society progress to be more open, understanding and inclusive.

Helmed again by Darius Cheung (CEO of 99.co) and joined by Ho Kwon Ping (Executive Chairman of Banyan Tree Holdings), Adrianna Tan (Founder of Wobe), Royston Tay (Founder of Zopim), Goh Yiping (Venture Partner, Quest Ventures), and Mohan Belani (Founder of e27), the Red Dot For Pink Dot campaign continues in its aim to be the platform for Singapore business leaders across all industries to lend their support towards inclusion and diversity in Singapore.

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.”
