Newsline: US Embassy in South Korea promotes LGBT right

A rainbow banner hung on the facade of the US Embassy building in downtown Seoul on Thursday, in an apparent show of its support for the upcoming parade of gender and sexual minorities. According to the US Embassy, the banner, whose multicolor stripes symbolize the LGBT pride and their social movements, is to “support and participate in this year’s Queer Culture Festival” for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people, or LGBTI. From Friday to Saturday, the colorful parade is to take route through the city starting at Seoul City Hall as the country’s annual Queer Culture Festival invites all participants in favor of same-sex marriage. The event is following the court’s rejection to approve a prominent gay film director and his partner of legal status for their same-sex marriage.
