One of the highlights from the three and a half hour AMeiZING World Tour Live-Encore concert was when the large screen featured same-sex and opposite-sex couples in the audience – most of whom enthusiastically kissed for the camera as A-mei sang Cai Hong (rainbow) and Tian Mi Mi (sweet like honey).
Earlier during the concert, the pop diva, who has been a "Rainbow Ambassador" for the Taipei Gay Pride Parade since 2007, spoke about love and relationships – whether it’s nan nan (man-man), nu nu (woman-woman) or nan nu (man-woman) – and asked the audience to show their love for the camera.
The images of same-sex couples received loud cheers from the audience while video recordings were widely circulated on social media over the weekend. It was a much welcomed respite as two anti-gay pastors in Singapore lashed out on the gay community and called for the retention of gay sex laws in Singapore in recent weeks.
This concert played to a packed house at the Singapore Indoor Stadium which has a capacity of about 8,000 people.
Last year, A-mei became the first celebrity in Taiwan to sign a petition in support of same-sex marriage and to recognise diverse forms of families.
