Pink Dot 2019: LGBT Singaporeans demand decriminalisation of gay sex and an end to discrimination

Cloudy weather didn't scare people away from the city-state's biggest annual LGBT rights event.

Pink Dot, the biggest day in Singapore´s LGBT calendar, arrived on Saturday (29 June). Hong Lim Park in central Singapore filled up with people decked out in pink, as well as rainbows flying all over the place. This is by far Singapore´s largest public civil society event, with a turnout otherwise unheard of in the city-state of highly restrictive public assembly laws. This year´s event calls on Singaporeans to `Stand Against Discrimination´.

British colonial rule is not clear, must be known the person who made rules and background such as Religion, education background, etc.
so, we should not blame british but anyone who involved and keep maintain section 377A until now, is called colonial

Of course the British MUST be blamed. The history is crystal clear. Parliament in London passed the anti-sodomy law in the UK in the 1860s. Immediately all British colonies at that time passed exactly the same law. After World War 2, Britain withdrew from all but a handful of its colonies. It did nothing to repeal the 1860s law before it left, no doubt because England itself did not repeal the law until 1967.

Section 377A is part of the baggage left behind by the British. Is it not odd that absolutely no other colonial power - and there were many - passed a similar law? The real question now is: had the law not already been on the statute books, would the newly independent nations freed from colonial rule then have decided to introduce such a law? I don't know the answer, but I very much expect most would not.

It is time people outside Singapore realised that Lawrence Khong, who gives himself the idiotic title "Apostle", is a joke. He is a master of illusion. Sadly that is fact. When he is not preaching hate, he is an illusionist and magician - a mere entertainer! This sick joke preaches creationism and rejects Darwin's theory of evolution. Those who follow him represent a tiny fraction of the Singapore population, yet he works his magic on the goevrnement and the media. About time he tried a disappearing act in one of his shows - and then just vanished.
