Advocacy & Social Justice

Our special guest for the 2021 Advocacy & Social Justice panel is Professor Todd Henry, who chronicles the turbulent history of 'queer' lives in Korea. The discussion follows female-born and male-born people who were sexually non-normative and gender-variant in post-war Korea throughout the authoritarian times. Professor Henry also highlights present-day queer activism in Korea and suggests ways to institutionalize LGBTQAI+ rights.
