Festival Breakdown  

○ Event: The 15th Annual Korea Queer Festival 2014
○ Program: Queer Parade, After Parties, Korea Queer Film Festival, Exhibitions
○ Organizers: KQCF(Korea Queer Culture Festival)
○ Slogan: Love Conquers Hate

 The 15th Annual Korea Queer Festival 2014 believes that everyone who lives in this society has to be respected as an individual and that no one has the right to hate or suppress anyone else. We also assert that no one should be hated or excluded because of their sexuality. Together with the slogan ‘Love Conquers Hate’, which is the name of the campaign spreading throughout the world against Russia's anti-gay discrimination, the festival wishes to protest against the oppression of LGBT people in Russia and Korea, and show support and solidarity within the LGBT community.
