We want Adam Lambert performing in Countdown 2016

24,742 Signatures Goal: 24,000

Dear event organisers. We the moral majority of Singapore utterly denounce and condemn the obvious sexual orientation discrimination demonstrated by the other petition on this site that is against Adam Lambert performing in Countdown 2016.

Please allow Adam Lambert to perform in Countdown 2016 to demonstrate to the whole world that Singapore is a country that shuns discrimination and promotes diverse inclusive points of view.

Not far to go now until we smash through the original target set by the opposing petition. Even though we started two days after we have passed their total. Onward Singapore! Majulah Singapura!

The opposing petition are anti family and anti Singaporean values because their discrimination harms family members. We support real family values and real Singaporean values by being modern and inclusive.

The groups "Singaporeans United for Family" and Singapore "Focus on the Family" have been promoting discrimination against LGBT people in Singapore by promoting the "against" petition. These groups also promote divisive discrimination by repeating homophobic claims commonly found in similar United States hate groups . We think it's time these groups truly respect all people living in Singapore and confirm they will help stop LGBT discrimination by working towards accepting and loving our LGBT family members and their natural and normal sexual orientation. Discrimination has no place in Singapore and these groups need to work towards a together Singapore not a divisive Singapore.

(Early Saturday morning, we just broke through their original target of 20,000 signatures and they only have 16,403 signatures.)

We have collected 24722 of signatures and achieved the goal of the petition. Thank you for your participation! The opposing petition struggled to reach 20,000 signatures and they were running for a much longer time period. The opposing petition have lost, Adam is still going to do the concert. The only thing the opposing side has accomplished is embarrassing themselves and the groups that promoted their petition. This is a clear message to those people that their homophobic and discriminatory ways are not welcome in Singapore.

The "against" petition was altered, after they failed to win, to remove the most egregious homophobic slurs. Instead it was edited to make a false claim that the show was somehow changed by their petition when it wasn't. To be clear, the "against" petition did not cause any published change to the show at all. Their claim is an attempt by them to save face by creating yet more misleading statements. Unfortunately for them the screenshots of the petition before it was edited are widely available on news websites.


Due to commentators from the "against" petition leaving many homophobic messages the discussion thread has been closed.

This country is built on the values of tolerance, acceptance and equality. It's a shame a minority of our population has tainted the reputation of Singapore with their petition attacking Adam Lambert and the LGBT community. I sign this petition because it's wrong and vile to discriminate. Say no to homophobia. It's a disease that should be wiped out.

Like seriously , I never thought Singapore was such a country where they discriminate others . As a Singaporean , I feel quite ashamed . If you do not want to Adam lambert here , just don't watch the countdown show . Why is there so much fuss over him performing? Singapore is a good country and we can do more than just discriminating others just because they are a bit different. As such , I support the petition .

I personally do support LGBT, but I think ANY Singaporean regardless of their opinion on LGBT should be opposed to this kind of bigotry and discriminatory behavior nonetheless.

Say no to dicrimination of any form

I don't think gay persons need to be removed, say no to discrimination

Those who are against Mr. Adam Lambert from performing should also set up a petition to stop Apple Store from setting up in Singapore.

Singaporeans stand up against homophobia. Are we still living in the stone ages??? This is 2015. Equality for all.
