S’poreans wouldn’t have guessed Vincent Wijeysingha’s gay

Posted on 30 June 2013

There was no inkling at all, they say.


Singapore Democratic Party politican Vincent Wijeysingha officially came out as a gay man on his Facebook page on Friday.

Vincent had posted an update on his Facebook that read: “Just in case Fabrications About The PAP is wondering, yes, I am going to Pink Dot tomorrow. And yes, I am gay.”

This sent shock waves across the entire Singapore.

One Singaporean, Bu Zhi Tao said: “I never had an inkling Vincent Wijeysingha was gay, although there was talk about it all over the Internet during GE2011. But thanks for confirming my suspicion.”

Others were even more shocked.

Tong Xing Lian, a local, said: “He had a tiff with VIvian Balakrishnan about a gay agenda in the midst of GE2011. But I had not for one second stopped to reflect that it was because Vincent Wijeysingha was gay.”

“Thought it was Vivian who was.”
