AAJA Seoul Presents: Covering LGBT issues in Korea

From a court ruling that ordered the National Health Insurance Service to provide spousal coverage to LGBT couples to the organizers of South Korea’s largest Pride parade being denied access to hold the annual gathering at Seoul Plaza, LGBT issues in Korea have made headlines both locally and globally over the past year.

As more media outlets focus their coverage on Korea’s LGBT community, journalists are having conversations about how to best cover these issues.

Join AAJA Seoul in a discussion with LGBT community leaders to hear their perspectives on what news coverage of LGBT issues has looked like in the past and how it's changed over the years. What are the most pressing and underreported topics in the community? And what should journalists keep in mind to ensure thoughtful coverage of these issues?

Please see below for details and how to RSVP.

➡️ When: Saturday, June 24, at 1 p.m.

➡️ Location: Details will be sent via email (Note: the event will be in-person only.)

➡️ The event is free for current AAJA members and 10,000 won for non-members.

For non-members, please direct transfer 10,000 won to Kakao Bank 3333131841036 (신희은).
