The move has definitely gained traction — the counter-petition has garnered over 7,500 signatures, and has been shared widely on social media. At the same time, those staunchly against Lambert’s appearance don’t seem to be backing down. Amid the cacophony of voices, the site published a list of 17 pro-gay brands Singaporeans against LGBT rights should avoid — Google, Coca-Cola and KFC, among others — should they truly want to boycott the movement.
- The counter-petition has gained support from some local personalities, such as comedian Hossan Leong and singer-songwriter Nat Ho.
- Some tried to explain their stance on social media, including on the Facebook group, We Are Against Pink Dot in Singapore .
- In 2013, the National Council of Churches in Singapore received a complaint against Lambert’s concert at The Star Vista, based on concerns that the singer might promote “the gay lifestyle” at a church-owned venue.
