Pink DotThis past Saturday marked Singapore’s first pro-gay rights rally Pink Dot, celebrating equality and the freedom to love for ALL Singaporeans. Drawing a crowd of over a thousand, Pink Dot provided a “platform for individuals, organizations and businesses to identify themselves as advocates of a more inclusive, more loving Singapore.”

From a speaker at the event:

We are born alone. We go to our graves alone. But there is no reason why any of us should have to live alone in this life … I support the freedom to love because I believe in love. Too many of my gay friends have left these shores because of intolerance. Let’s make a change today. My father is here too today to support Pink Dot. He too wants to make a change. Everyone, in the words of the great Mahatma Gandhi, “Be the change you want to see in the world.
