We are proud to be part of the 28,000 at Hong Lim Park yesterday to participate in the amazing gathering of love that is Pink Dot. Looking forward to a discrimination-free future where we truly consider our LGBTQ community a part of Singapore! Here are some photos we took.
Just to plug the new book Mobilizing Gay Singapore: Rights and Resistance in an Authoritarian State, written by Dr Lynette Chua, currently Asst Prof of Law at NUS. It’s touted as a ground-breaking document of “the history of the gay rights movement in Singapore and asks what a social movement looks like under these circumstances”.
It’s about 200 pages and looks like an easy read. We got our copy at the launch (the panel and dinner were fantastic!), and you should too, if you are interested in Singapore, LGBTQ issues, history and/or politics. More info, and buy yours here (paperback) or here (hardcover/e-book).
