LGBTQ Korea community members joined the historical citizen protest over the weekend, raising their voice against, not only the Korean president, but also LGBTQ rights issues.


On the night of November 12, over a million citizens gathered to protest against the recent Presidential scandal and to demand that President Park Geun Hye step down. 


SEE ALSO: 1 million citizens gather to protest and demand President Park's resignation



Among the million citizens were about 300 LGBTQ community members, including allies, who were there to specifically protest against the military law that criminalizes sexual intercourse between two same-sex individuals, whereas the same activity between opposite-sex individuals only results in a disciplinary measure. They demanded the abolishment of this law as well as the President's stepping down from her position. 


Below are some of the photos from the LGBTQ protest.

    isn't korea conservative country ? .. LGBT community should respect the country culture and keep their sexuality to themselves , also it's kind disrespectful to jump on the protest to promote their own issues . they using this protest to bring attention for themselves it's kind disrespectful to the people who protesting against the wrong doing of the president .

    That is really brave tho... In LGBT protest it is ilegal to film or take photos(you have to cover the faces of everyone if you do) because that could ruin someone's life... Here they are really exposing themselves... So much respect for this people!

    Bet this has ruffled the feathers of Wang Sejung. I wonder whether any SNU students attended the protest alongside the LGBT protesters ;)

    All words have effect ;) so you say they don't but it does have an effect because subconsciously you are now giving yourself excuses to the question 'why am i perpetuating hate when it isn't my business?'' and subconsciously realising that its because you are lacking in some areas causing you to put someone down in order to make yourself feel better :D pathetic.
