Comparing the crowd then and now, I must say the atmosphere is much more festive and more people were willing to pose for photographs with happy expressions. The turnout has grown exponentially, such that the designated venue, Hong Lim Park can no longer contain everyone.
For those who do not know about Pink Dot, it is an annual event campaigning for diversity and inclusiveness while fostering understanding for the basic human need to love and be loved, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
Global financial firm J.P. Morgan, local hotel PARKROYAL on Pickering, popular contact lens specialist CooperVision and audio branding agency The Gunnery, came on board as Corporate Contributors of Pink Dot 2013. They join a growing list that includes search engine giant Google and international banking group Barclays.
