Cathay Cineleisure helps advertise Pink Dot 2017

In what seems to be a first, Cathay Cineleisure has put up an advertisement for Pink Dot 2017.

“PinkDot2017 – supporting the freedom to love, Hong Lim Park” is the giant banner on the side of the elevator inside the cineleisure building.

It is believed this is the first time that a commercial building has allowed the advertisement of the annual gay event held at Hong Lim Park’s Speakers’ Corner.

Last year, the authorities decided to tighten the rules for the event and informed the organisers that foreigners will no longer be allowed to participate in the gathering this year.

2 weeks ago, after discussions with the police on security measures to ensure such a ruling is adhered to, the organisers of Pink Dot announced that barricades will be set up for this year’s event to be held on 1 July.

“Pink Dot is too significant and urgent to be confined to a barricaded park and for a day,” theatre director Ivan Heng said on his Facebook page, referencing the advertisement. “BRAVO CATHAY CINELEISURE!! Thank you for making a stand for equality and the freedom to love.”
