More than 210,000 people have signed a petition posted on the website of South Korea’s presidential office calling for a gay pride festival to be canceled. The Seoul Queer Culture Festival is in its 19th year and is set to take place on Saturday, with a parade near the historic Seoul Plaza as the main attraction. “We are not discriminating against sexual minorities, but Seoul Plaza belongs to all citizens,” the petition states. “We do not want to see their abominable events in a square where we should be able to rest and relax,” it continues.
