Put a Pink Dot on your laptop – coffee cup – or on your bathroom mirror.  This is to remind you that you are in solidarity with your rainbow brothers and sisters world-wide.

May 31, 2015 – 3,000 beautiful and proud people held a Pink Dot Rally in Taipei.  Imagine the smiles, but also imagine the concerned look on faces that know that if you are a gay man in Singapore and you are caught loving another man – you have committed a crime.  Can you imagine – a crime of loving another human!!!  And Singapore is a leading cultural centre of science and technology – yet, so backward on this issue.  paula.

The proud Taiwanese adopted the same words or theme as the original even in Singapore – Freedom to Love.  They marched, danced and sang and hugged one another in Huashan Creative Park in Taipei.

I wish to congratulate you all – I know marriage equality is on the minds of you all and the politicians.  Ireland hopefully gave you encouragement.

Students – Awakening the Consciousness of the Masses

The rally was organized by Gay & Lesbian Awakening Day (GLAD)  a LGBT group comprising students from a dozen universities in northern Taiwan.  The concert and rally is the FOURTH Pink Dot even to be held in Taiwan.  Just an observation, I am enclosing a picture of two lesbians who were married by a female Buddhist priest in Taiwan.  I just love this picture and it will happen in time for you all – if you wish to marry.
