update: share your korean american lgbtq story

it's time to get pen to paper!

the dari project has extended its call for stories until march 15th. if you're a korean american homo (or you're not but you'd like to write about your lgbtq k-a sibling, friend, coworker, etc.), please contribute your story to this important project.


the dari project develops resources to increase awareness and acceptance in korean american communities of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (lgbtq) people of korean descent. by documenting and sharing the life stories of lgbtq people and their families and friends, we seek to build bridges among korean american families, social networks, institutions and faith communities. our name, dari (다리), means both “bridge” and “legs” in korean, and symbolizes our wish to build ties within and among our communities.

what we are doing

the dari project is collecting autobiographical stories and artwork that will document the voices and lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning people of korean descent, as well as the people in their lives. we seek to display the diversity of lgbtq people and their stories of joy and struggle in their lives, families and communities.

i recently joined dari's board of advisors, so if you have questions about the organization or need help brainstorming, don't hesitate to let me know. this is also a great opportunity for aspiring writers to get something published while increasing visibility for the lgbtq korean american experience.
