The Capital of South Korea Seoul will see different actions. So far, there will be an exhibition campaign about queer childhood, there are plans for a singing and line dance flash mob and a campaign about transgender Human Rights will be launched in the Itaewon area around Seoul.

Chingunsai, an LGBT-rights organization in South Korea, is going to hold a photo exhibition called “The story which I cannot tell my mum” on the Day. The showcased photos will be based on the submission of online entry of the photos of Koreans’ queer childhood, accompanied by their “secret story” of growing up as LGBT individuals. The photos will be shown in a online exhibition which you can find here, as well as in an exhibition at the Gwanghwamun Square in Seoul on May 17.
Chingusai (‘between friends’) is one of the oldest sexual minority organisations in the country. If you are looking for more information about the history and the work of the group, please visit their website here.
The Rainbow Action- a coalition of sexual minority organisation in Korea- are in the midst of planning a flash mob with singing and line dance to commemorate IDAHOT in the Daehanmun area on May 17, starting at noon.
Patchwork Project Team, the transgender human rights project at the Korean Sexual-Minority Culture and Rights Center KSCRC will be launching a campaign about transgender human rights around the Itaewon area (Seoul). The printed materials will be distributed on the Day.
