Over in the US, the race for the Oval Office has started.
A number of potential candidates have risen up to challenge Donald Trump in 2020 to be the next president. Over in the Democratic Party, the other major political party other than Trump’s Republican Party, candidates are going on national TV to talk about their political positions so as to win votes.
And one candidate, Kirsten Gillibrand, stood out: before running, a few of her views were, say Position A, but after “visiting Brooklyn” and seeing how wrong she was, her views changed to Position B.
But at least she stood firm to her change in views.
Over in Singapore, someone faced the same problem, but instead of doing a “visiting Brooklyn”, he decided to bail out altogether instead.
Pink Dot Singapore 2019
Lest you’re not aware, the next Pink Dot Singapore would be held on 29 June 2019 at Hong Lim Park.
The annual event, which has been running since 2009, has often attracted massive crowd and media coverage.
An event in support of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community in Singapore, attendees would form up to create a “pink dot” to show support for inclusiveness, diversity and the freedom to love, so if you’re going, please make sure you’re not colour blind and wear the wrong colour.
In addition, there would be concert performances and booths sponsored by organizations supporting the LGBT community and causes, and ambassadors (usually popular celebrities) would also promote the event.
Last year, the ambassadors includes celebrities like Patricia Mok, Tan Kheng Hua, Adrian Pang, Lim Yu Beng, Janice Koh and more.
And this year, if you go to their Facebook Page, you’d see the ambassadors immediately, which comprises Beatrice Chia-Richmond, Internet funny queen Preeti Nair and her brother, and Tosh Rock.
Nothing wrong with the ambassadors…except that after the announcement, people realised something.
Meet Tosh Rock, aka the guy who acted as Sergeant Ong in Ah Boys to Men
Even if you’ve not switched your analogue TV to Digital TV, you would still know about Tosh Rock, the rapper who played Sergeant Ong in Ah Boys to Men.
Ever since the 29-year-old’s shot to fame since 2012, he has been active on mainstream media and new media, taking roles in both the small screen and the big screen, and coming out with singles.

But people spotted tweets that suggested that he might be homophobic.
