Pink Dot this Saturday

Dear Friends of the Singapore Queer-Straight Alliance,

This Saturday is Pink Dot, and all are welcome to participate. Feel free to learn more about the event and FAQ at http://pinkdotsg.blogspot.com/

I hope everyone will have good fun this Saturday (and also keep the park clean). Come in pink to show your support for the freedom to love.

SinQSA will have a mat and you are most welcomed to approach us to get a small token representative of the support of queer-straight friendship and harmony. These are badges and car window/windscreen decals (picture available on the SinQSA group wall).

I also take this opportunity to make an appeal for donations to help us recover some of the costs of producing these badges and decals. We will not be soliciting donations or monetary contributions on Saturday, but will have a box ready to receive any kind voluntary bits of generosity.

If you’re keen to donate to SinQSA before/after Pink Dot, feel free to drop us an email. You may also email us if you are keen to volunteer for a couple of hours at the SinQSA mat – any help will be greatly appreciated.

See you on Saturday.
Sam

Support the freedom to love.

May 16 is the day of the Pink Dot

Hello everyone,

Do you support the freedom of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people to love? Then show your support by joining our smart mob at Hong Lim Park on 16 May, 4.30pm!

This is NOT a protest nor a parade, just a simple call for open-minded Singaporeans to come together to form a pink dot, of which aerial photographs will be taken. This pink dot is a celebration of diversity and equality, and a symbol of Singapore’s more inclusive future.

Venue: The field at Hong Lim Park

Date & Time: May 16 (Sat), 4.30pm

What to wear: Pink (caps, hats, glasses, sunglasses and accessories are recommended.)

What to bring: Anyone who supports the freedom of LGBT Singaporeans to love.

What to expect: The human pink dot will be formed by around 5pm and a photograph will be taken from a vantage point nearby.

SinQSA’s Straight Privileges project

Hello friends!

Starting March 2009, SinQSA will be embarking on a small project.

In each of our monthly meet-up, everyone will take turns to contribute to the list of straight privileges, which contains the taken-for-granted things straight people have in Singapore.

This project aims to display the simple things in our daily lives as Singaporeans that may in fact be privileges exclusive to a group of people, in this case, those who identified as heterosexual. Any one, who identifies as straight or queer, are welcome to add to this list. It is a round-table effort, as the list is literally passed around the table for your guys to contribute.

An example of such a list can be found here.

We will see how long this list will grow in the months to come. We will compile it and post it on our website.

Hope to see you at our monthly meet-ups. Join our facebook group for more information!

Come to our launch!

The Singapore Queer-Straight Alliance (SinQSA) is launched with this fun and interactive forum, where the spotlight is on discomfort with queer people and its verbal manifestations in Singapore.

Be it instinctive or reactive, intolerance and deprecation seem to be part of our lives. What do we say and why?

The session, facilitated by Sam Ho and Jean Chong of SinQSA, is aimed at improving our understanding of one another.

Everyone is welcome. Bring your “fags” and friends!

Date: Saturday, August 2, 2008
Time: 3:00pm – 6:00pm
