In response to a statement made by PM Lee, Pink Dot SG openly invited him on a Facebook post to go to Pink Dot 11 so that he can listen and learn from the community.
Lee Hsien Loong said:
“You know our rules in Singapore. Whatever your sexual orientation, you are welcome to come and work in Singapore,” he said. “But this has not inhibited people from living, and has not stopped Pink Dot from having a gathering every year. “It is the way this society is: We are not like San Francisco, neither are we like some countries in the Middle East. (We are) something in between, it is the way the society is.”
Pink Dot responded that they disagreed with him. You can read their full post here:
Despite the invitation to join Pink Dot this year, he was of course nowhere to be seen.
His brother, however, turned up with the family to show support of the event and his son, Li Huan Wu, who got married with Dr Heng Yirui in South Africa this year.
Great to see the whole family supporting the cause! Will our Prime Minister ever attend Pink Dot to listen to what they have to say?
