More than 21,000 turn up at Speakers' Corner for Pink Dot 2013

More than 21,000 turn up at Speakers’ Corner yesterday for the annual Pink Dot event. Participants turn Hong Lim Park into a sea of pink light by forming a pink dot using torches and mobile phones.
Looks like we need a bigger Hong Lim Park. Organisers tried applying for permit to use Promontory at Marina Bay this year but was rejected by URA. Subsequence application for part of North Canal Road to be closed was also rejected by Traffic Police.
This is the 5th year Pink Dot is being held in Singapore. Pink Dot is a non profit movement started by a group of individuals who care deeply about the place that LGBT Singaporeans call home. Last year, more than 15,000 people turn up at Hong Lim Park.

Let’s hope someday everyone will have the freedom to love. Let’s hope someday they won’t be discriminated.
