KQTcon 2018, the first national LGBTQ Korean conference in the United States, will take place from April 6-8, 2018. It will be an unprecedented gathering of LGBTQ people of Korean descent, parents & family members of LGBTQ Koreans, as well as allies & friends of the LGBTQ Korean community.
We are a group of volunteers across the U.S. dedicated to organizing the first national LGBTQ conference for folks of Korean descent. KQTCon is a project hosted by Dari Project, based in New York City. The Dari Project develops resources to increase awareness and acceptance in Korean American communities of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) people of Korean descent. By documenting and sharing the life stories of LGBTQ people and their families and friends, we seek to build bridges among Korean American families, social networks, institutions and faith communities.
KQTcon will be hold at The New School in New York – registration is free, and conference organizers will provide financial support for traveling and housing on a case-by-case basis until Feb 25.
