At my first Pink Dot in 2013, I turned up at HLP in black, surrounded by a sea of pink. I've managed to get it right every year since. Advertising Standards Authority of Singapore (ASAS), on the other hand, is still getting it wrong.
I write to you today with a heavy heart. I have been and always will be a Singaporean Son. Someone who has done his part to play a constructive role in society. Having done my duty to the country in the highest capacity that I could. However, something that I have learnt as of late is that my country will never stand by me.
I refer to your response on All Singapore Stuff maintaining your position on Pink Dot. I would like to start off with mentioning that my purpose for writing this has anything to do with discriminating against LGBTQs or whatsoever.
LGBT rights are human rights. It is shameful in this day and age that many countries, including Singapore, continue to deny basic rights to the LGBT. It is shameful that President Donald Trump holds more progressive views on LGBT rights than many Singaporeans do.
