Being gay and black has definitely shaped my point of view. My perspective is different and I constantly live out of that difference. I actually make a living talking about my non-mainstream POV. It is time for me to give space to another unique perspective, gay Korean man love. Today's New York Times features an article on gay-themed Korean film King and the Clown.
I get so angry sometimes when I feel that the mainstream has forgotten about me. Or when my point of view is ignored. I don't want to do the same to my Korean brothers. They have it tougher than we do here. It has only been two years since Korea removed homosexuality from the Youth Protection Commission list of socially unacceptable acts.
