Seoul held its 14th annual Korea Queer Cultural Festival in the college district of Hongdae this past weekend. Although not nearly as big as Los Angeles' or San Diego's festivals, the day was a burst of color and alternative rarely seen in Korea. My friends and I had a great time, but it was an experience of mixed emotions. I attended the fest to enjoy the temperate weather, have a good time with other English teaching friends, and to express my pride as a gay man. My first two intentions were met quite well. The third, however, was disheartened just a little by the size of the festival.
