A South Korean court has suspended taking “disciplinary action” against a group of local graduate students who were targeted for wearing gay pride-themed attire during a church service in May 2018. Seoul Eastern District Court said Friday five students of the Presbyterian University and Theological Seminary will be allowed to apply for an injunction against disciplinary action, Yonhap and Newsis reported. All disciplinary action is to be suspended until a final court decision is reached in a case that is highlighting strongly discriminatory attitudes toward the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community in South Korean churches.
