5-14 August: RetreAttack! @ Dahlia Gallery (69A Pagoda Street) by Rainbowartsproject

RetreAttack! is the second installment of rainbowartsproject’s annual “RA” visual art exhibition for the IndigNation festival. This year, 13 local and regional artists will be presenting works under the theme of camouflage. Participating artists will be exploring the phenomena of coming out yet at the same time keeping low profile, or even hiding, which is apparent within the LGBT community. Indeed we are proud, but is there a need to publicly showcase our sexuality or simply living the life as any other people out there? Works presented will answer and question this issue, provoking new thoughts and discussion about the word “pride” itself. Participating artists are Alam Taslim, Darren Sim, Ezzam Rahman, Farah Ong, Guo Yi Xiu, Hangga Diputra, Kelvin Atmadibrata, Lee Gwo Yinn, Norm Yip, Sarah Choo, Thatree Suksilapachai and Vincent Chow.

13 August: Proud to be ME! by SgRainbow @ 72-13, 4pm

There are many forms of youth activism: some demand for political changes while others do it for the social good – by the community for the community. The Youth Forum: Proud to Be ME! is a one-off informal talk session by a panel of youths from very different backgrounds but share the same vision – to be part of the growing community. Through this forum, we hope that gay and bisexual youths can talk about their experiences as “activists”, as well as share what they wish for the future of the younger generation. All other age-groups are welcome to join us.(http://www.sgrainbow.blogspot.com/)
