Freedom To Love

“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. Isn’t it? I think I am really …

Pink Dot

We have finally attended the first Pink Dot together! Look at A’s face in the picture above, she looks so happy. We had a wonderful picnic and celebration at Pink Dot 2012 with some 15000 other people!

She looked quite ridiculous to be honest because Boo is not a “pink” dog, but oh well, it’s Pink Dot anyway! A little pink won’t hurt. :p We did a little cape (with special message) for her. And completed with pink sneakers and a furry pink collar, Ridiculous Boo is born! HAHAHAHA! Here are some pictures from yesterday. It was such a great feeling to be there and to see friends (gay or straight) there to support the freedom to love! Saw Sam the moment I got there! I was there with A, Carol …

Life Gets Better Tomorrow

Tonight, I felt inclined to share my thoughts and feelings about my personal life. Some people might call me brave. Some people might call me stupid; because hereforth, I will be labelled as different. When my friends mention me to their friends, I would probably be described as “gay”. Some might think that I am just juvenile and confused, not knowing what I want at the age of 27. There would also be some people, like many of you, who would think that being different is not a big deal. Because we are all free to love who we are, and gender does not matter. If you are one of few, thank you. Someone once told me that straight people are just lucky because they belong to the majority. Putting aside who is in the majority and who is not, have you ever thought about why most of us think that being straight is normal while being gay is not? Who decides what is normal and what is not? The society? The society and our …
