After two years of celebrating Pride month indoors, at the comfort of our own homes, we can finally meet our loved ones and enjoy this month face-to-face.

I'm pretty sure everyone is pretty excited to get together with their friends, flatmates, family and partner to celebrate the month of love. And of course, when one mentions celebrating Pride month in Singapore, Pink Dot will be the first thing that they think of.

Psst... to celebrate Pride month, we have a special giveaway for all our readers. Continue reading to find out more!

Pink Dot 14

Returning to Hong Lim Park this year, Pink Dot is an event where we celebrate our LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer) friends, showing solidarity and supporting the freedom to love.

This year, Pink Dot is happening on the 18th June 2022 at Hong Lim Park from 3pm till 7pm.

You can show your support just by attending, with placards and more. There'll be exciting live performances and speeches, and you can also visit LGBTQ+ groups at Community Tents.

To physically attend this one-day event, you have to be fully vaccinated, and be a Singapore citizen or Permanent Resident (PR) as per Speakers' Corner regulations.

Not a citizen nor PR? Don't worry! You can still join in the celebration by decorating your Cove common areas in pink with your flatmates!

There are many other ways to celebrate Pride month, continue reading this post to find out.

Watch a play about Singapore LGBTQ+ couples

In this local theatre production by Wild Rice, we get a glimpse of how local LGBTQ+ couples in Singapore deal with their everyday lives in Singapore.

In a play called Straight Acting, these two couples have to pretend to be like a typical heterosexual couple to start a family and make a life together.

You can get the tickets to Straight Acting via their website here. This play is happening at Wild Rice @ Funan, from 16 June till 2 July.
