18 June 2011 /Singapore Pink Dot Day

We think this is a great initiative in a region with so much legal, cultural, and social repression.

SINGAPORE, 18 May 2011 – In exactly one month, on 18 June 2011, Singaporeans will, for the third year running, gather at Hong Lim Park to form a human pink dot in support of the belief that everyone deserves the freedom to love.

Organised by a pool of Singaporean volunteers, Pink Dot campaigns for diversity, inclusiveness, and works to foster understanding for the basic human need to love and be loved, regardless of oneʼs sexual orientation.

This year, Pink Dot 2011 is fronted by the DIM SUM DOLLIES (picture below), the comedy trio comprising Emma Yong, Pam Oei and Selena Tan. Festivities begin at 4.30pm with a dynamic line-up including performances by Dave Tan of local indie band Electrico, Broadway Beng Sebastian Tan and dance group Voguelicious.

A campaign video, conceptualised and directed by award-winning filmmaker Boo Junfeng (Sandcastle, Cannes 2010), can be seen here: http://youtu.be/FrIB5Ojbqns.

Already, the video has garnered more than 34,000 views within 36 hours of its May 17 launch.

Boo, 28, said: “The social stigma that LGBT people carry is often overlooked when we talk about homosexuality. The freedom to love and the comfort of being yourself, things many LGBT people hope to have, are often taken for granted by straight people. Beyond the event on June 18, I hope the video will continue to empower and inspire empathy for LGBT people”.

Pink Dot spokesperson Paerin Choa said: “We believe that Pink Dot 2011 will take another step towards a more inclusive and cohesive Singapore. Past events have seen people from different walks of life come together for this event – young, old, straight, gay, families and friends. It is extremely heartwarming to know that Singaporeans believe in building a more tolerant and harmonious society.”
