Tens of thousands attended South Korea’s largest annual LGBT festival on Saturday, vowing to continue fighting for gay rights after the Seoul city government denied them a prime spot and gave it to an anti-LGBT Christian group. The Seoul Queer Culture Festival, staged outside city hall in the nation’s capital annually since 2015, except for two years during COVID-19, was instead held nearby after the city government in May gave the permit for a Christian youth concert to be held at the prime spot. “You can see a lot of hateful banners behind me as well as those that support us on our right,” said Yang Sun-woo, chief organizer of the Seoul Queer Culture Festival.
