fund this: the dari project

The Dari Project is an all-volunteer, grassroots effort to develop resources to increase awareness and acceptance in Korean American communities of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning people of Korean descent.

They're currently fundraising to publish the first collection of personal narratives of LGBTQ Koreans as a bilingual resource for LGBTQ Koreans and their friends and families. To make this happen, they need community support.

Here's some more information on the project:

We've solicited 27 stories from members of our community, which represent multiple experiences, including homo/bi/transphobia in Korean American communities, coming out as an LGBTQ person, building relationships with family, and membership in faith communities.

Thanks to some friends and supporters we’ve been able to get started but we need your help to publish this collection as a bilingual print resource for our community. Your generous contributions will help edit, translate, design, and print our stories this summer. If we can make our goal, it will help make this book available for FREE to your friends, families, communities, and people you care about.
Their goal is to raise $12,000 by November 30. To make a donation, go to the CrowdRise campaign here. For further information, visit The Dari Project website and follow updates on Facebook.
