Pink Dot 2016 was held at 4:30 pm on Saturday, 4 June 2016 at Hong Lim Park.

It secured the sponsorship of a record number of foreign multinationals registered in Singapore as well local companies.

Shortly after the event, in response to complaints from anti-LGBT elements, the government announced that multinational companies would no longer be allowed to support the event, even if they were registered in Singapore.
