Guidelines prepared for police to protect the rights of sexual minorities

 

I saw this article in the Seoul Newspaper, but didn't find a translation. It was short, so I thought I'd translate it for my readers.

Guidelines prepared for police to protect the rights of sexual minorities
March 19, 2013
 
Mr. A, a gay man, was threatened to be exposed as gay to his family and friends by his ex-lover of last year. Mr. A wanted to report it to the police, but he was worried his sexual identity would be revealed during the investigation process so he gave up on reporting the threat.
 


The People -v- The Black Guy on the Bus

Courtesy of The Marmots Hole this piece of ‘news’ came into my world. I’m sure much more has been said and much more will be said.I’m sure much more has been said and much more will be said. If you are really interested I will allow you to spend your afternoon taking in the comments section in the post – there are some wonderful, inteligent commentors to marvel at. All of that aside I want to chime in with my own little tome. These are just a few things I was mulling over as I walked home from work (yes, today in that heat…perhaps I’m delirious) – I didn’t take the bus because I was afraid of ajjoshis, but because I need to lose some weight and I like walking at night during the summer.


HBC Fest – A grainy and blurred photographic reflection

Yesterday was, of course, the HBC Fest. It was very colourful, especially if you consider the busfuls of cops that turned up to help us out with crowd control. It’s good to see that our taxes are eventually getting their money’s worth, especially when it comes to the 5-O. Anyway, I’m sure that the prominence of the cops has well advertised on the Korean blogosphere. This suits this post perfectly as I don’t intend on sharing any pictures of the cops – although I did see one great picture of some guy standing in and helping out the cops as crowd control which was hilarious… Anyway more about the cops later…


Is Seoul ready for the G20? - and - an experiment that needs your help!

I'm totally stealing the title from Foreign/er Joy's post, because it's where this post got its start.

I had high hopes tonight. Get to work sorting out the photos and notes from the Haebangchon Festival, the Hi Seoul Festival, and the Irish Ceili Music / Dance Festival - all of which happened this weekend.

And then my desktop computer decided to crash. Thanks, desktop. Just what I needed. Anyway, I was reading Joy's post on Seoul and the G20 when the question presented made me stop and think:

Is Seoul really ready for the G20?

On stalking, following, and this man
