A record 26,000 people turned up at Hong Lim Park yesterday for Pink Dot 2014, an annual event that supports the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
 
At 8pm, all the participants came together to form a shimmering, giant pink dot with torches, mobile phones and light sticks, that included an outline of a heart in the centre. Pink Dot spokesman, actor Paerin Choa, said: “It is very heartening to see the dot growing year on year.
 
We believe that this sends a strong message of love and acceptance, affirming that Singapore is a home for one and all, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation or gender identity.”
 
Here are some photos from the event.
