DDing Dong (Rainbow Teen Safe Space) 18th letter
DDingDong Lunch (Totobap)
15th Aug, DDingDong moved to a new building. So we could make more spaces for LGBTQ+ youths. Now we have two private counseling rooms and they are bigger than the small one in the office we used to be. And there are more such as a brand new shower room and a cozy common room has comfort couches.
This year there were many local queer pride festivals. Like last year, DDingDong went to those cities as often as possible. We set booth in Gwangju and Busan Queer Culture Festival in Sep and Oct. And we held Moving DDingDong Lunch(Totobob) in each city. So we could meet many LGBTQ+ youths who live in those cities.
We counseled 20 LGBTQ youths in Jul, 17 in Aug and 21 in Sep. And we support LGBTQ youths in crisis providing food, daily necessities, medical services, counselling and so on.
We hosted DDingDong Lunch(Totobob) total 4 times for this three month including Moving DDingDong Lunch in Gwangju and Busan.
We continued outreach program, DDingDong Pocha(Korean Style Bar), it is held every first Saturday night of every month. We share some food and snack. And they can play some board games and if they want they can get a counselling. And we gave many condoms, lubricants, sanitary pads, lip balms, wet wipes, socks, underwears, vitamins and so on.
