As Pride Month around the world draws to a close this weekend, activities continue with Singapore’s biggest LGBTQ+ affirming event, Pink Dot SG, taking place on Saturday, 29 June. Pink Dot SG has served as a safe space for the Singapore LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer) community since 2009, and it’s always a vibrant celebration of love, diversity, and inclusivity.

Happening at Hong Lim Park, the theme for its 16th edition in 2024 is “No One Left Behind” and underscores the ongoing challenges and discrimination faced by the LGBTQ+ community, even after the landmark repeal of Section 377A.

Attendees, who must be Singaporean or Singaporean PRs, can look forward to stirring rally speeches, community tents, and electrifying performances from Singapura Drag Royalty, which includes over 40 Drag Queens and Kings. Don’t miss the signature moment of the Pink Dot: the illuminated night formation at 7:30 PM.

If you’re unable to go and don’t want to watch from the sidelines, don’t worry! There are other ways you can show support by attending these events around the island.
