Dear Friend,

Happy new year! Warm greetings from DDing Dong. Last weekend was Korean Lunar New Year ‘Seollal’. Wishing you a New Year filled with joy and success. 

We’ve continued to support LGBTQ Youth last 3 months. In particular, ‘DDing Dong restaurant’ has been successfully held. ‘DDing Dong restaurant’ is the monthly event, sharing meals with playing and education with queer teens. Every single ‘DDing Dong restaurant’ is always full these days!

Here are some details of our activities :).

1. Successful ‘DDing Dong restaurant’

‘DDing Dong restaurant’ in November was specialized for TDoR(Transgender Day of Remember). We were reminded to make trans youth feel safe and solidarity. In December, commemorating World AIDS Day, we focused on HIV/AIDS issues. Educating various stigma and discrimination of HIV/AIDS, queer teens had talked about worries of sexual relationships which were hard to share in normal daily life.

2. Listen to the Transgenderqueer teens: about the experience at the school

One of the most important visions in DDing Dong is making the school safe for queer. Last October, there was an online meeting space for sharing the stories which are about transgenderqueer teens’ experiences in school. They told us the specific gender dysphoria moments when they’re using the toilet or locker room for PE class. 

Few days ago, DDing Dong published a report ‘A Study on the Improvement of the Legal System for an Inclusive School Environment’. We will do our best to make the transgenderqueer students could be educated in the safe school environment.

3. ‘Rainbow Kit’ every month

‘Rainbow Kit’ is our montly project consisting of food and basic living supplies to LGBTQ runaway and homeless youth. By this, we could find the queer youth who are in crisis situations and connect them to constructive support. The requests from queer teens are increasing every month as well.

We prepare ‘Rainbow Kit’ with DDinga DDinga, DDing Dong’s volunteers. New DDinga DDinga for 2024 will be reruited. At the same time, we are checking the system to make sure the sustainable ‘Rainbow Kit’.

We sincerely appreciate your support. Donors make us continue our above activities. Looking forward to your continued support.

Best regards,
DDing Dong.
