Challenge

Korea is a culturally conservative society; therefore, heterosexism and homophobia are prevalent in the homes, schools, religious centers, and streets. Consequently, LGBTQ teens are very likely to be in danger of emotional, verbal, and sometimes physical abuse/violence. As a result, they face psychological problems such as depression, low self-esteem, and high risk of committing suicide. Despite the demand, there are no free counseling centers, hotlines, or shelters in Korea for the LGBTQ teens.

Solution

DDing Dong is committed to providing comprehensive counseling, crisis intervention, and empowerment support to LGBTIQ youth in crisis situations. We aim to help them achieve self-respect based on their gender identity and sexual orientation, and lead autonomous lives. By connecting with us, LGBTIQ youth can rebuild their confidence and gain the support of the LGBTIQ community instead of struggling alone. We focus on raising awareness about the discrimination while advocating for the equal rights

Long-Term Impact

Connecting with DDing Dong can help LGBTIQ youth rebuild their confidence and gain the support of the LGBTIQ community, instead of struggling alone. In addition, we focus on raising awareness about the discrimination LGBTIQ youth face in Korea while advocating for the equal rights they deserve.
