BBC News published this video item, entitled “Gay rights in South Korea’s military highlighted – BBC News” – below is their description.
In South Korea, gay soldiers can serve, but they can be punished for consensual sex. This law is currently under review by the country’s top court.
Artist and activist Jeram Kang says he was sexually harassed while serving in the South Korean military. After army commanders learned that he was gay, Jeram was outed. He was later transferred to a psychiatric ward.
Ten years on, his hand-written testimony, along with stories of other gay soldiers, have been turned into an art exhibition highlighting gay rights.
