Translation: '사랑' 사전적 정의 '이성애 기준'으로 되돌아갔다 The Dictionary Definition of Love Has Restored to a Heterosexual Basis

Translation: Heo Ji-ung's Gay Proclamation: "I have experienced skin ship with gays, but I'm not that way"

From Dailian:
허지웅 게이 발언 "동성애자와 스킨십 경험... 하지만 그쪽아냐"
Heo Ji-ung's Gay Proclamation: "I have experienced skinship with gays, but I'm not that way"

I thought it was fish cake!

Nothing new seems to be coming out of Korea in terms of queer news, so I decided to translate this old article. It is hilarious. In case you don't know what 어묵 is, it is that fish cake you often see in Korea.

Why don't you use a condom?

Found this great survey from iShap. Education everyone!

Queertoon Translation: Insadong Scandal

Angelcrazy has posted some more comics. Some of his aren't the most appropriate for this blog, but I liked this one.

Girl: Wow, let's go rest for a bit.
Boy: Sure. How about going for a coffee?

Lesbian(?) Music Video: 골라봐 (Take Your Pick) Translation

This video is a bit old, but I just discovered it. The group Ten (텐) Wreleased 골라봐 back in 2009. Two women are sexually assaulted on the subway (probably line 2) and proceed to comfort one another (eventually physically). This video came out right before I moved to Korea for the first time, but I hadn't heard of it till 2013. Does anyone know what the reaction was like in Korea?


Watching the video you would think "Hey, those ladies love ladies". Then you take a look at the lyrics.

Translation: MBN News' The Republic of Prostitution... Now Homosexuals Participate as Well

Last week, MBN News produced a segment on gay prostitution. With the shocking title of 성매매 공화국... 이젠 동성애 성매매까지 (The Republic of Prostitution... Now Homosexuals Participate as Well) I recommend watching it at MBN News' homepage. Pay particular attention to how they characterize the same-sex prostitution as something worse than heterosexual prostitution.  Some of the language is quite dramatic.



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.
 


Translation: Queer Toon 14: I hate myself for being like this

Here is a new Queer Toon by Angel Crazy that I actually can post because it isn't too raunchy...

HIV/AIDS Awareness Campaign in Seoul

After a wonderful date in Apgujeong, including a love box viewing of Les Mis, I headed home via subway. There, I saw a huge poster with an HIV/AIDS awareness poster.

The top message says 'AIDS, if you know it correctly, it isn't scary'.
