In 1972, Singaporean newspaper New Nation published a series of articles called ‘The Outsiders’, featuring interviews with various queer women who spoke out on condition of anonymity. Fast forward more than 40 years, and what has changed? Playwright Alfian Sa’at speaks with more than 20 queer women in Singapore—including an activist, a writer, a cosplayer, a student and a Paralympian.

The Insiders is a documentary play that captures tales of coming out, falling in love and creating alternative families. Join actors Tysha Khan, Farah Ong and Deonn Yang as they read from a specially curated one-hour version of this exciting new play. It’s free to attend!

Director: Tan Liting
Cast: Tysha Khan, Farah Ong and Deonn Yang

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.”
