Singapore’s third annual Pink Dot Festival will bring the nation’s LGBT population together along with the straights that adore and support them in Hong Lim Park on June 18. While the celebration is a bit of a commute for most of UB’s gay blog readers here in the States, Pink Dot has put together an incredibly moving promotional video for the event. It gave us chills!
Pink Dot’s video accomplishes what so many American-made propagaynda shorts fail to; it makes you feel something. Pink Dot’s narrative of LGBT allies desperately wishing they could voice their support for the lesbians and gays in their lives amidst a socially conservative Asian culture that traditionally frowns upon anyone upsetting the normal family hierarchy launches empathic fireworks in the viewer’s heart and mind.
Seriously, I dare you not to be moved by this video. So go on now. Watch.
