Singapore’s 4th annual Pride Season is here again with talks and forums, art and literature, as well as social and outdoor events.
A movie fundraiser and Singapore premiere of the film Wilde, which was held on May 13, had raised S$10,000 for Indignation, the city-state's annual Pride Season.
The film depicted the life story of playwright and poet Oscar Wilde who is today widely celebrated as an artist persecuted for his homosexuality. He was found guilty of "gross indecency” and sentenced to two years' imprisonment with hard labour in 1895. Singapore's Section 377A, which continues to outlaw sexual relations between men up to this day, is descended from this law.
The $10,000 will be used to help fund selected events held during the festival to be held in August as all Indignation events are open to the public and are usually free of charge (unless otherwise stated), in order to be accessible to everyone.

We are a local gay community group where size matters. Our events aim to create a friendly environment where bears, cubs, “G-men” and other stocky and big-sized men – as well as the guys who love them – can hang out, exchange ideas and mingle.
We have shifted to facebook which makes things easier for us logistically. Please look for us at TheBearProject@Facebook
