Singapore's gay pride rally has attracted sponsorship from a record number of companies this year despite tighter government regulations aimed at stopping foreigners from supporting it, organizers said on Wednesday. Organizers of the Pink Dot rally have raised S$253,000 ($183,000) from more than 100 Singaporean companies for the July 1 rally at a "Speaker's Corner" in a downtown park. Last year, 18 companies contributed, 13 of which were multinationals like Alphabet Inc's Google and Facebook. Organizers declined to say how much was raised last year.
