The 23rd Seoul Queer Culture Festival took place in downtown Seoul yesterday, July 16, 2022. The slogan was ”Let’s live, unite, and go forward.”

Thousands of people came out to enjoy the event, while conservative religious groups held a rally against the festival across the road.

A total of 72 booths from various organizations were installed to raise awareness of LGBTQ+.

Ambassadors across the world participated in the festival, including US, EU, Canada, Netherlands, Norway, Germany, New Zealand, UK, Denmark, Sweden, Australia, Ireland, and Finland.

The US ambassador to Korea Philip Goldberg gave a speech at the festival and said, “The United States will end discrimination wherever it occurs and ensure that everyone is respected and treated as human beings.”

Due to Covid-19, the festival has been held online for the last two years, but this year’s festival could be held offline as social distancing rules have eased.
