I think i am losing it. Lost my guts somehow. Its been a few months since I last took any photos off the street. What a better time to start again with Pink Dot 2013.
Pink Dot Singapore 2013 is a once a year initiative calling for an inclusive society, the rights the freedom to love for all, no matter if one is Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or a Transgender.
I only had an hour before i have to rush off for another gathering, but what the hell, its an event that I cannot miss. This year the turn out was a massive, record breaking 21,000 people to be held at Hong Lim Park on 29th June. They came with picnic mats, wine, food, drinks, costumes, songs, celebrities….everything !!!
The weather has been most compromising. The haze did not come back and the sunset gave the event a nice warm glow.
“What ? You are not staying for the light up ? Its the best part !”
Everyone, all 21,000 people will be given a mini torch with pink lights and they will light up altogether all at once. I am sure it will be amazing and it was, judging from this post production video (see below) of the event which i took off pinkdot.
I took pictures of whatever i can during that hour and requesting people to pose for pics. I found my guts again. 35mm…had to get real close !
I am sure I fit in pretty well. I was in pretty pink !!!
Even pets joined in the celebration !!
My favorite cotton candy and its in pink !!
