Pink Dot

Section 377A of the Penal Code criminalises “gross indecency” between men in Singapore, which can be punished with imprisonment for up to 2 years. This law legitimises and perpetuates discriminatory attitudes towards LGBTQ persons. After failing to petition the Government to remove Section 377A, a group of LGBTQ activists came together in 2009 to organise the first Pink Dot at Speakers’ Corner in Hong Lim Park, a rally to advocate for social acceptance of the LGBTQ community and awareness of the struggles they face.
