    Korea Queer Festival of 2014


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     wodyddl355 photographed an LGBT festival in Seoul, Korea, on June 7. He says the festival was aiming to promote LGBT rights. He says overall the event was good, providing resources and information to the public about the LGBT community. But some conservative groups did stop by the festival to harass attendees and denounce the event, while others tried to block the festival’s parade. 'This festival is considered as one of the first footsteps in LGBT rights movement,’ he said. 'The older generation, 50 and up are strongly against LGBT, but generations lower than 50 are okay with it.'
