Timothy Nga Obituary, Death – We are sharing the news that Inaugural Pink Dot Ambassador Tim Nga died away on Sunday, January 9th, 2023. It is with a heavy heart that we do so. 2009 was the year when Tim came out as a supporter of the LGBTQ community, at a time when fear, ignorance, and hate were the predominant attitudes toward this group. When asked about the reasoning behind his stance, he responded as follows: “I have very good friends who are gay, and I don’t think they, or anyone else, should have to say sorry to anyone for the way they are.” Sometimes it’s necessary to take a position for what we believe in while maintaining an open mind and welcoming attitude. Because Pink Dot is able to achieve that, I decided to become a member of the organization.

Tim was an actor and director who worked in film, television, and theater. In addition to those professions, he was an avid photographer, dirt bike rider, football player, and cat lover. Tim made it a point to wear rainbow shoelaces to his regular Saturday football games since he felt that the atmosphere was one in which “it was very awkward to talk about stuff like this. ” Therefore, I believe that bringing it up as a topic of conversation has become the norm for me, and if a buddy of mine is using phrases such as “don’t be a f*g,” I find myself going, “Really? Seriously? What do you mean, you’re going to say that? should just avoid making it a problem, but instead draw attention to the fact that it’s not quite as cool as it used to be.”

In point of fact, it was also Tim’s hope for the future that, with Pink Dot gaining so much more visibility since 2009, there would be more opportunities for dialogue and understanding between the LGBTQ+ community and its critics, someday where both sides could “actually wave and say ‘hey, maybe one day we will build a bridge’. This was Tim’s vision of the future. You should know that even if there is only one rope spanning the gap between us, there is still a chance that we can continue our communication. Friends don’t turn into foes, and people who used to attend the same church don’t drift apart. Like that, lah”. We at Pink Dot would like to express our sincerest sympathies to Tim’s family and loved ones upon his passing.
