Over a dozen businesses in Singapore have turned their storefronts or facades pink ahead of Pink Dot 13, to be held on Saturday, Jun 12 in the form of a livestream instead of a rally at the Speakers’ Corner due to Covid-19 restrictions.
Like last year, Pink Dot has called on Singaporeans to light up their homes, and businesses to light up their work spaces, as a gesture of love, support and solidarity with the LGBTQ community of Singapore.
“The past 2 years has been tough on the community with the Covid-19 pandemic, with transphobic and homophobic incidents, with Section 377A – an archaic and unconstitutional law still in the books even though it is not enforced and its many trickle down effects. These pink lights may not strike down unjust laws, but they serve as a reminder for our community to keep hope, that change will come no matter how long it takes, and we will never stop advocating for a more just and equal society for everyone, for the #freedomtolove.”
Some of the businesses are among those who have come onboard as sponsors for the Pink Dot 13 Livestream via Red Dot for Pink Dot, a platform for Singapore companies and business leaders to network and promote inclusion and diversity in Singapore.
