Pink Dot Sg (http://www.pinkdot.sg) is a non-profit movement started by a group of individuals who care deeply about the place that LGBT Singaporeans call home. Why Pink? Because it is a blend of red and white – the colour of Singapore’s flag. It is also the colour of our national identification cards. More importantly, Pink Dot Sg stands for a Singapore in which all Singaporeans, regardless of their sexual orientation, are free to love and be loved. 2,500 people supported this cause in 2009. In 2010, this nearly doubled to 4,000. In 2011, over 10,000 participants turned up, growing to 15,000 in 2012. The year 2013 saw the largest number of Singaporeans and permanent residents turning up to date, at 21,000. This consistently ranks Pink Dot as the largest gathering since the inception of the Speakers’ Corner in 2000.
