2016 Korea Queer Culture Festival & Pride Parade

The 17th Annual Korea Queer Culture Festival is in full swing here in Seoul with festivities kicking off earlier this month in front of City Hall with the 2016 Pride Parade & other activities. Korea FM attended the event to speak with festival organizers, attendees, foreign diplomats & even a Christian activist who threw himself down in front of the parade route in protest, noting that homosexuality is the origin of AIDS, gay couples only care about sexual pleasure & Korean people are unable to accept their lifestyle.

  1. Listening to your report, I was left with the impression that you thought it was inappropriate for Ambassador Lippert to concentrate on speaking to booth workers and attendees rather than the press. As one of the people Ambassador Lippert spoke to, I was impressed that he wanted to hear stories from people like our congregation, the one international, multicultural, LGBT+-affirming church in Seoul, if not the whole country.

    If you do believe that was inappropriate for Ambassador Lippert to do, well, that’s unfortunate.

    1. Hi Craig, thanks for the comment. It was great to see ambassadors from different countries speaking with booth workers & attendees at the event. It was unfortunate, however, that the US Ambassador said he was too busy to speak with members of the press despite spending the next half an hour or longer out & about at the event. We would have loved to speak with Ambassador Lippert & were disappointed that he chose to ignore requests from multiple reporters for even a one sentence comment. Luckily, the French Ambassador was much more welcoming & spoke with us at length about his country’s support of human rights.
