With the easing of Covid-19 restrictions, Pink Dot 14 will take place on 18th June, 3-7pm at Hong Lim Park. Unfortunately, we will not be doing a livestream this year but do look out for our hashtags #PinkDot14 and #TheChangeWeWantToSee on social media, as well as IG live check-ins on the day itself.
In accordance with Hong Lim Park Speakers’ Corner regulations, only Singapore citizens and Permanent Residents are allowed to enter the barricaded part of the Event Space. Strict Safe Management Measures will be observed and entry will only be granted to fully vaccinated individuals via the TraceTogether app / token. As per the Ministry of Health’s guidelines, Children under 12 years of age do not need to be vaccinated to enter.
Pink Dot 14 will invite participants to write messages of hope and change on physical placards*. In response to the government’s promise that it will review its policies to reflect shifts in social attitudes, Pink Dot SG will call on participants to collectively envision what a more inclusive future could look like.

Since the Covid-19 pandemic, Pink Dot SG has sold pink lights and encouraged the lighting up of homes and businesses to show solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community. We hope to make this a yearly tradition throughout the Pride month of June. Check out some fabulously decked out homes and businesses here or purchase lights and other merchandise here.

Many LGBTQ+ Singaporeans around you are not easy to identify. They may be amongst your siblings and children, colleagues and bosses, teachers and schoolmates.
Though more LGBTQ+ individuals are slowly emerging into the mainstream, prejudice and bigotry in present societal attitudes keep many LGBTQ+ individuals from coming out of the closet. Many of them fear that in coming out, they might lose their family, friends and even their jobs. Yet, by not coming out, their lives are shrouded in secrecy.
We believe that relationships should be built on love, not fear and secrecy. Unfortunately, most LGBTQ+ individuals in Singapore are denied this basic freedom to be who they are in front of their loved ones.
We love Singapore. This is our home and we believe that diversity is a cornerstone to our civil society.
We are aware that many people harbour much hatred towards the LGBTQ+ community. That is why such events are important. It serves to foster understanding, and through that, there is hope for trust and social cohesion.
This is a pro-family event. LGBTQ+ individuals have families too! However, familial relationships often get compromised due to a lack of understanding.
Through this event, we hope to get people thinking about the issues commonly faced by the LGBTQ+ community, both inside and outside of their families—issues that many Singaporeans take for granted.
We believe that an event like this can play an important part in promoting understanding and unity amongst family and friends.
