Fridae.com's chief executive Stuart Koe responded to Sadasivan's remarks with an indictment of the government.
"The government has failed to address the issue of MSMs (men having sex with men) in any of their public health campaigns," Koe told AFP. "Because gay sex is illegal, many of the public health agencies in Singapore aren't even available to work with MSM groups."
Another of Fridae.com's large-scale events, a holiday circuit party called SnowBall, was denied a permit last December because officials said the event contradicted the "moral values" of the majority of Singapore's citizens.
