We're building bridges among lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and questioning (LGBTQ) people of Korean descent, with parents, family members, faith institutions, and allies. We seek to transform the Korean American community into a welcoming and loving space for everyone.
On April 4–6 2018 we organized KQTcon, the first national convening of queer and trans Koreans in New York City with over 200 attendees from all over the US and other countries. Please read more about this historic event on our Blog!
Who we are
We're a volunteer-led collective of LGBTQ+ Korean community members with over 20 years of experience as educators, organizers, and advocates. We're inclusive of parents of LGBTQ+ Koreans, faith leaders, bisexual, trans and gender non-conforming folks, immigrant and undocumented individuals, adoptees, and mixed-race people.
We're driven by a motivated team of LGBTQ Korean Americans and fiscally sponsored by National Queer Asian Pacific Islander Alliance (NQAPIA).
Want to get involved?
After the April 2018 conference, KQTcon is engaged in a re-strategizing process at a national level. We are also supporting local LGBTQ Korean and ally groups to organize. If you'd like more information, please contact us, below!
