Ho Ching Shares LGBT Post On Her Social Media, Is She Pro LGBT Or Pro PM Lee?

Ho Ching, the wife of PM Lee and possible the richest CEO in Singapore ever, has shared yet another pro-Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) post on her social media page. Ho Ching, of course, has been notorious lately for flood posting her FB page with many links every single day.

THE WORLD HAS ENOUGH REAL PROBLEMS & PINK DOT AIN'T ONE OF THEM

Here is what I learned going to this years Pink Dot (my first) as a straight, Christian-raised, middle aged father. I'm not gay. I'm not an activist. I have no (pro or anti) LGBT agenda. I just figure the world has enough real problems. Pink Dot and what it represents ain't one of them.

I'M A TRANSGENDER IN SINGAPORE, AND I DON'T SUPPORT PINK DOT

I personally do not need Pink Dot nor a gay pride parade because I live with pride everyday of my life and surround myself with friends and loved ones. I am proud of my career achievements, my life experiences, and not because of my identity. I don’t need an annual virtue signalling parade to make me feel good about who I am. The fact is, I am a Singaporean first, and a transgender second. I would rather be celebrated for the former than for being different as the latter.

FOREIGN ENTITIES APPEAL TO SUPPORT PINK DOT, OUTRIGHTLY REJECTED BY AUTHORITIES

A group of foreign companies such as Facebook, Google and Uber wrote in to Singapore authorities to ask for permission to support this year's Pink Dot but were unfortunately rejected. In their letter, the group of companies expressed support for inclusivity, diversity and in creating a safe space for their employees to work in. They understand Singapore has its own regulations and already suggested not to have their names listed or recognised as official sponsors. They also assured that no foreign representatives will speak at the event. However, our authorities still flat out rejected their application to support the event.

Instead of explaining why they rejected the application, the authorities reiterated that foreign entities must abide by our laws and not fund or support events that concern our domestic matters. Do you think this is necessary to make Pink Dot free from "foreign intervention"?

ASAS MUST APOLOGIZE FOR ASKING CATHAY TO REMOVE PINK DOT POSTER & CAUSING GRIEF TO LGBT COMMUNITY

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.

S'PORE GOVT ARE COWARDS FOR TRYING TO TAKE DOWN PINK DOT POSTER

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.

PINK DOT ADVERT REMOVAL CONTRAVENES UN RESOLUTIONS ON LGBT RIGHTS & PROTECTION

ASAS also cited the SCAP’s General Principles, specifically under its “Family values” section 10.1, where advertisements should not “downplay the importance of the family as a unit and foundation of society.”” In what way does the advertisement breach “community support and respect for the individual”; and “consensus, not conflict”? Is this arguably, in contravention of the United Nations’ resolutions on the protection and discrimination of LGBT rights passed on 30 June 2016, 2014 and 2011?
