LGBTQ Korean-American Stories

Posted by – November 13, 2012

This seems like a cool project, so I told an old friend I’d post it here:

I am reaching out to you again to seek support for Dari Project’s goal of publishing a bilingual book of stories of the Korean American Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual/Transgender/Questioning (LGBTQ) community.

Theresa and I have made a commitment to help Dari Project (?? ??) to raising $1,000 by the November 30th deadline.  $10, $20, $50, $100 or any other amount you can donate will go towards the publication of this much needed resource in our community.

Just click on the link to donate:  http://www.crowdrise.com/dariproject/fundraiser/hjlee

While you are visiting the site to make a donation or just to check out, please spend the time to read the heart-aching stories of the Dari Project Coordinators:

Halmunee (???; grandma): Check the remarkable story Elena Chang and her grandmother’s love and acceptance of Elena in this Youtube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xKlVKnN-RLU&feature=plcp

Mark: Mark writes about why we need visibility/resources for LGBTQ individuals in Korean American community.

Remember that the deadline is NOVEMBER 30, so make your tax-deductible (receipt via email instantly) donation TODAY!

BTW, when you make the donation online via CrowdRise link (http://www.crowdrise.com/dariproject/fundraiser/hjlee), you have the option to adjust the Optional Processing Fee (which is set to default $10) to any amount you want or none.

Please forward this to anyone who may be interested in supporting this project.  Thank you!
