ANTI-PINKDOT: LOOKING FWD TO NO FOREIGN PARTICIPATION AT HONG LIM PARK AFTER MHA'S STANCE

Over the past few years that the Pink Dot event had gained noticeability at Hong Lim Park, it has not gone unnoticed that foreign multinational companies’ participation at this event have also increased. Not only are foreign MNCs
supporting the event financially, they are also supporting the event by encouraging employee participation in this event. This is evidenced by participants wearing common pink T-shirts bearing corporate logos at the event.

ANTI-PINKDOT SUPPORTERS ATTEND PINKDOT TO SQUEAL ON EVENT

You bring your friends. You sing hymns at the perimeter of Hong Lim Park one day before Pink Dot. You pray that on the day itself bad weather will strike the event. But in its eighth year there is still no bad weather. Does this cause you to have a crisis of faith and question the power of your prayer? Of course not. Perhaps you haven’t prayed hard enough. Or prayer alone isn’t sufficient, you need to take worldly action.

So you come down to Pink Dot. You have your camera ready. You take snaps of every single thing which you think amounts to a violation of the rules. One of you sees my friend in drag. He thinks that you might want to pose with him, but all you do is take a shot of him and you move on. You are patrolling. You are amassing evidence. You with your self-righteous rage. Later on you will write police reports with these photos that are supposed proof of ‘obscenity’. Or ‘public nuisance’. Or ‘foreigner participation’.

I know one of you took a photo of an overflowing rubbish bin and lodged a complaint about it. Another one of you helpfully pointed out to the police last year which foreigners were forming the dot, and they were later taken away for questioning. I know what you’ve been doing, and now I’d like everyone else to know too.

PM LEE HSIEN LOONG TO ATTEND PINK DOT 2015 THIS YEAR?

An intriguing conversation occurred during Lee Hsien Loong's online Facebook Q&A session. A netizen Lim Jialiang asked PM Lee, "Why do you keep wearing pink shirts? I like pink too! Let's go to Pink Dot this year!". Would you expect a reply to such a tricky question? Knowing the PAP, probably not. But surprise surprise, not only did Lee Hsien Loong reply, he gave a very very unexpected answer. Not exactly what the silver bullet the LGBT community wants to hear but it seems to be getting there isn't it?

"HE LOOKED YOUNGER THAN 18 FOR GAY SEX"

But he was in for a shock when they finally met - the other "man" looked a lot younger than what his profile suggested. Said the manager, who did not want to reveal his surname for fear of being identified: "The guy's profile only showed his torso and not his face." "I stupidly assumed that he was at least 18 years old, as you need to be 18 to use the app because it's part of the terms of service."

JAPANESE LEADING DICTIONARY REMOVES HETERONORMATIVE DEFINITIONS OF LOVE AND SEX

One of Japan’s leading dictionaries has made a significant (and arguably long overdue) step towards acknowledging and normalizing homosexuality by revising the entries for words relating to love and sex. They have removed restrictive references to these feelings existing only between a man and a woman, opening up the definition of love to everyone — gay, straight, or otherwise.

APPLE CEO CONFESSES HE'S GAY, CAUSES CRISIS IN FCBC

Yeshu Aini, a local religious person, said: “My entire life is in disarray. I have all along been an Apple fan and bought the iPhone 5 and 6 that were developed under Tim Cook’s charge. Therefore, I have been directly contributing to sin by financing it and this has allowed homosexuality to thrive.” “No wonder this latest 5.5-inch iPhone 6 feels so good in my hands. It is because this is the average length of the male anatomy.”

FORMER STRAIGHT MAN: I ENJOY GOING TO GAY CLUBS IN TANJONG PAGAR!

Every gay man has a coming-out story, but I believe in a coming-out place, a place which links us to our rite-of-passage point at Tanjong Pagar; a place which reminds us that, before our collective memory in the gay space of Tanjong Pagar, we each have a space that is unique to our own gayhood.
