Every year we show our support for PinkDot by putting up a poster or two, blogging about it, and maybe sponsoring something or other.
This year, we are going to do something different. We are coming out, and we are making a statement.
The Garden Slug is closing shop today, a Saturday, to support The Freedom To Love by having the entire team attend PinkDot. Yes, all twenty of us will be there.
This. Is. BIG. Hokay? ‘Coz we never, never, never, never, ever close shop on a SATURDAY, yo.
We are proud to say that our team of Slugs comprises smart & passionate people from all walks of life, we welcome anyone as long as they’re willing to work hard. Same goes for the way we treat our customers – we don’t care whether you are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or heterosexual. We welcome you without discrimination. (Oh, except when you have noisy, unruly children we really wish you’d go away. But ah well, even rude, ugly children shouldn’t be discriminated against. Here’s to democracy & having the freedom to breed.)
We’re also really excited about today because we are taking this opportunity to make this a team outing!
We hope to see some if not all of you today too. Seriously, dude, it’s 2011. We reckon we no longer have to “fight” for acceptance, and that most Singaporeans are really cool about having lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and heterosexual family members. No seriously, a lot of you have straight friends & family and you sekretly (or openly) think they’re kinda weird and gross right? Listen to us – don’t be a**hole. Straight people were born that way, okay?
