The first Jeju Queer Culture Festival will be held in Jeju on Oct. 28. Jeju is the fourth city in Korea to hold a Queer Culture Festival following Seoul, Daegu, and Busan. In Jeju, the Queer Culture Festival has been organized by a few people from a (non LGBT) civic organization and when I started to participate as the co-head of the joint organizing committee, it became more regularized. I guess the reason why I became head is that I am from Jeju (I currently I live in Jeju) and I have experience working for the Queer Culture Festival. I am also an Amnesty International member. I didn’t hesitate to take the position and the Seoul Queer Culture Festival Organization Committee's help is a great encouragement to me.
