“I support the freedom to love.”
It’s always easier said than done.
Pink Dot 2014 is the most special Pink Dot for me because this year,
I have two of the most important women in my life with me – A and my most supportive Mom.
I have seen many parents at Pink Dot, and I always think to myself how fortunate their children are.
For me, I have never really spoken to Mom about my sexual orientation or what I plan to do in life
until a couple of months back when A and I told my Mom about our decision to get married in time.
My mother’s readiness to accept us surprised me.
And what was more surprising was how she instantly agreed to attending this year’s Pink Dot with me!
I mean, being accepting is one, but being at Pink Dot with me means so much –
because to me, it shows that she is proud of me and my choices in life as well.
I think I am really a very fortunate girl, to have an understanding and supportive mother,
and a whole bunch of close relatives who treat A just like family.
That picture above truly depicts how my Mom was like the other day. Hahaha!
I have a lot of friends who want to attend the Pink Dot but some can’t,
and some are not courageous enough to.
I truly hope that someday, we will all have the courage to stand up for what we want in life.
