South Korea LGBT festival proceeds, bumped from prime spot by Christian group


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.
