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"?

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?

CATHAY STANDS BY PINK DOT, ALMOST WANTED TO SCREEN ADS IN CINEMAS

Following the commotion about Pink Dot's advertisement in Cathay Cineleisure, Cathay spokesperson's responded by standing by its decision and saying it is an inclusive company which accepts a culture of equality. Funny why some people are making a fuss over this now as Cathay has been openly supporting the cause for a few years already. It was a corporate sponsor and even wanted to screen Pink Dot's trailer in its cinemas if not for strict censorship by the Media Development Authority. The authorities have also confirmed that Pink Dot organisers are allowed to carry out their promotional activities because they already have a licence.

PPL AGAINST PINKDOT ARE NOT OLD-FASHIONED, LGBTS ARE THE INTOLERANT ONES!

Our reader defended those who got offended by Pink Dot's advertisement at Cathay Cineleisure. He/she said that people who are against Pink Dot are not old-fashioned or easily offended. Instead, it is the LGBTs who do not tolerate their views and portray them as such. The reader said homosexuality itself is even more old fashioned as it dates back to ancient Greek and Rome. He/she accepts LGBT colleagues and friends but is against those who try to make homosexuality a mainstream culture. What do you think?
