June 27, Pink Dot SG, Singapore’s landmark LGBTQ-affirming event will go digital to adapt to the new realities of a global pandemic. While we cannot physically be together, Pink Dot 12 aims to unite the community and its allies through digital activations that foster a spirit of inclusion and love.
Like our queer counterparts around the world, LGBTQ Singaporeans have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic. A majority (63.8%) of those surveyed by local LBTQ organisation Sayoni reported faced challenges with mental health, while almost half (47.3%) said they struggled with social isolation and inability to access support systems. Many (21%) expressed concerns about their identity being disclosed to families or said they (20.1%) were living in hostile family environments.
This year’s theme, Love Lives Here, was chosen with these challenges in mind. We invite all Singaporeans and allies to Light Up, Sign Up and Show Up for Pink Dot 12.
Light Up by decorating your homes or businesses with pink lights during the month of June to show support to those who might not be able to do so. Watch our campaign video here to learn more.
Sign Up online now to leave messages of love and support, and form our first ever digital pink dot at https://loveliveshere.pinkdot.sg.
Show Up on June 27 for our livestream and join in the celebrations on https://pinkdot.sg.
