(3) Program:

 

There is no need to bring anything but yourselves to light up the plaza together to form a Pink Dot for equality at Seoul Pink Dot. 

Having a pink item of your own would be great, but don’t worry if you don’t! 

We have all kinds of items at the ready so that everyone can be a part of Pink Dot. 

 

① 17:00-21:30 Booth events

Many organizations will be running booths that you won’t see at the Seoul Queer Parade. Arrive early at 5pm to take your time exploring and enjoying what the booths have prepared for you. Perhaps take a moment to yourself to lounge on the grass and relax. 

 

② 19:00-21:30 Stage performances, Pink Dot lighting ceremony, and photoshoot

A variety of performances and stage programs are prepared for the first SQCF night event in two years, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the festival.

Then, when the clock strikes 9, everyone will gather to light up Pink Dot. This light will banish the shadows of discrimination and hate within Korean society and pave the way towards equality.

The lighting ceremony will be followed by a photoshoot to preserve the moment.
