More than 20,000 turn up at Speakers' Corner in support of gay rights

 

Hong Lim Park was turned into a shimmering sea of pink at Saturday night's Pink Dot mass picnic.
This was the fifth edition of the event, which was held for the first time in 2009.
Police had rejected the organiser's bid to close part of North Canal Road for the event this year, after crowds spilled beyond the specified boundary of Speakers' Corner last year.
But that did little to stop more than 20,000 people from turning up in support of gay rights here.
