Step aside Gilbert Goh, your protests are no match for Pink Dot.

With some 21,000 in attendance, this year’s Pink Dot LGBT (Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transformers) event on June 29 at Hong Lim Park has proven once and for all to be at least six times more popular than all the protests put together by Gilbert Goh in a year.

This goes to show that Gilbert Goh’s Chinese New Year and May Day protests, attracting a mere few thousand people, are simply not that significant in comparison.

Self-styled political pundit, Eric de Yaya, said: “If Gilbert Goh’s two protests were considered significant, then Pink Dot is undoubtedly the mother of significance.”

And the significance shows a deeper underlying message.

Eric de Yaya said: “If you look carefully, this year’s Pink Dot is not even a Blob like last year’s. This year, it is a Whale.”

The significance of the whale is important, analysts said.

Religious scholar, Yeshu Aini, said: “The whale is a central character in the biblical story of Jonah, who got eaten by one, is spat out and goes on to lead the city to repentance.”

“In the same way, the Pink Whale this year will consume the people of Singapore, spit them out and they will go on to repent for being hostile to the LGBT community.”
