Pink Dot 2016 – The Oxymoron

This year some conservative groups called for no overseas intervention in Singapore politics. They petitioned that foreigners should not be allowed to attend PinkDot so as to not “interfere” with Singaporean culture, as though they are spreading homosexuality here. I find this amusing because it couldn’t be further from reality.

Pink Dot VS Wearwhite – Learning to live with democratic chaos

We can deduce that the two camps are not going to compromise anytime soon, but what does this mean for Singaporeans? It means that first, we will be seeing movements and counter-movements from both LGBTIQ and conservative communities for some years to come; second, Singapore will come under intense media scrutiny, particularly from an international media that is sympathetic to LGBTIQ causes; and third, Singaporeans will have to live with the messy debates, name-calling and polarised politics that have come to characterise similar LGBTIQ movements in other countries.
