Indignation is the LGBT Pride season in Singapore, reaffirming our participation in the intellectual and cultural life of this country, reminding all that we are as much a part of Singapore as anyone else. The organisers are motivated by a belief that however difficult, progress is possible. We are not passive victims of ignorance and prejudice in an unchanging landscape. We are active citizens playing our part in making Singapore a better place.
The first season was in 2005. This year, 2008, will be our fourth annual season.
Each event is separately organised by by different people, who as a gesture of solidarity, are contributing their events to the joint calendar.
It is never easy organising gay-related events in Singapore. Many kinds of events require licences from various government departments, which tend to react with suspicion towards anything that is gay-themed. Even when licences are given, past experience has shown that intimidatory tactics from the police can still be expected.
Funding is another area affected by the political climate; hence the organisers are particularly grateful to those who have bravely stepped forward with sponsorships, particularly 72-13, the arts space, and Fridae.com.
Join us this August 2008 in our annual celebration of Pride. Support our fundraising events that make it all possible.
