Members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community in Singapore face oppression, both societal and institutionalized. There are also many groups in Singapore working to raise awareness about LGBT rights, though. One of the most prominent of those groups is Pink Dot Singapore, which was formed in 2008. On Saturday, the group will hold its third mass public gathering at Hong Lim Park, which was designated the Singapore’s Speaker’s Corner in 2000, making it a safe zone for free speech and demonstrations.
Google Singapore is supporting Pink Dot 2011 on 18 June 2011. On this day, Singaporeans will, for the third year running, gather at Hong Lim Park to form a human pink dot in support of the belief that everyone deserves the freedom to love. >>>
