Hello, it's DDing Dong. This is our first letter in 2022 and we wish you a very happy new year! In the new year, we continue to outreach LGBTQ youth in need. Despite all difficulties caused by Covid-19, DDing Dong always has had our door open to LGBTQ youth and kept up with HOT-LINE counseling and crisis support. 

 

#Rainbow Kit

As last year, DDing Dong will keep providing Rainbow Kits consisted of food and basic living supplies to LGBTQ runaway youth. When delivering the Kits, we make sure whether our Kit users have other difficulties and help them by counseling and necessary support if they do. In 2021, we delivered Rainbow Kits to a total of 50 LGBTQ teenagers. From January to March 2022, 10 Rainbow Kits were sent and DDing Dong continues to provide our youths suitable support and be there for them. 

 

#Birthday celebrations for transgender youth

DDing Dong sends messages of support and congratulations with gifts to transgender youth on their birthdays. In 2021, we sent 54 messages and gifts to celebrate with them. From January to March 2022, 34 messages and gifts were sent. It is one of DDing Dong's core values that we welcome and embrace transgender youth the way they are. We will keep on striving to make society more welcoming and supportive of transgender people.

 

# Publication and distribution of <The Key to Answering, Ver.2> that will solve curiosity about HIV/AIDS

This is a resource book containing 20 Q&As and information that teenagers can be curious about or face with regard to HIV/AIDS in their everyday lives. For example, it particularly provides information on HIV infection routes, prevention and testing methods. In addition, it is also designed to guide readers about appropriate manners when communicating with people living with HIV. By encompassing accurate and scientific information on HIV/AIDS, we hope to contribute to efforts to tackle misconceptions and hatred over them. The resource book was distributed not only to LGBTQ youth, but also to teachers and social workers who often meet young people.

 

# Publication and distribution of LGBTQ Youth Peer Support Kits (Guidebook)

LGBTQ Youth Peer Support Kit <It's okay to be different! - OO's book to get to know different identities> was published to help LGBTQ youth in occasion when they meet another LGBTQ youth of similar age or encounter words or actions that harass LGBTQ people. Through the guidebook, we hope to provide information about sexual minorities and raise awareness among young people who have been hesitant to act against such harrassment. This guidebook can also be useful for non-LGBTQ youth to get to know different genders/identities and learn to respect diversity. The guidebook and pride goods were distributed to teenagers, teachers and activists.

 

# "National Assembly, Enact Anti-Discrimination Law!"

DDing Dong joined an one-man protest and nonstop protest keepers' activity to rally collective action called "Let's Win 2021 Anti-Discrimination Law Enactment within the Year!"
