Gay in Korea - For Men

See video
In an effort to ensure the identity of the speaker is protected, his name is not revealed, and his voice has been altered. This is a video expressing one man's personal opinion about being gay in Korea. Many of my subscribers have asked for this topic, and I have also received some emails to my YouTube account with questions about this topic. I will make a video where I share my opinion about being gay in Korea, if you would like to me to. Though I am not gay, I fully support gay rights, and I also have a lot of gay, bi, and lesbian friends. Please feel free to post comments and further questions here. If I can answer them, I will. If not, I will ask my friend with whom I made this video to make an account and to answer your questions anonymously here. Any abusive comments will be deleted. Please vote them down if you see them. Also, ladies! The Female lesbian perspective video has already been filmed. I'm just editing it and should be finished this week. Men should also watch the female version as it addresses more of the legal consequences about being gay in Korea, and also about why identity needs to be protected carefully.

Dublin Pride, June 25 2011

Hanging around in town (Dublin, not Seoul or Suwon) yesterday we stumbled on the Dublin Pride festival. I knew about it but hadn’t registered it until we were on Georges Street.

The biggest thing about the parade, as far as I could see, was the number of participants! It was quite spectacular, at least for me anyway. I have no idea about the number of gays or there rights/problems/social stigmas that are still attached to them. I know that they are definitely more out and about than back in the day, the day being when I was in secondary school or something like that. I found out later that there was around 30,000 people at it – that makes it second to Paddy’s Day in size and importance


I had been in Korea for less than a week when I was introduced to my manager’s middle and index fingers half inserted up my rectum. Eighteen months later I feel I am ready to write about that most unwelcome violation. It is called dong-chim. Roughly translated, it means ‘poop needle’. A Korean act that I am told originated in Japan.

Surprisingly, it has been deemed culturally acceptable for people of all ages to insert their fingers up the unfortunate’s anus. When the Japanese introduce their digits to the rectum ‘Kan-CHO!’ is shouted, expressing their delight at this unseemly and unwanted penetration.
