THE STORY:

Friends and Family -

Like many of my LGBTQ Korean comrades, I was frustrated by the lack of resources for Korean immigrant families and friends of LGBTQ people.  Originally, I supported this project as a donor.  Now, as a coordinator, the Dari Project has quickly become a project near and dear to my heart.  Please support us in reaching our goal of $7000.  If we reach our goal, we will be able to release the collection of personal stories by early Spring 2013.  My personal goal is to raise $1000 on behalf of the Dari Project. 

THE DEADLINE IS NOV. 30, SO PLEASE MAKE YOUR TAX-DEDUCTIBLE DONATION TODAY.

- ALL DONATIONS are tax deductible through our fiscal sponsor, API Family Pride.

- ALL TRANSACTIONS are safe and secure.  Alternatively, you can send checks to our fiscal sponsor with a memo written to Dari Project:

API Family Pride
P.O. Box 473
Fremont, CA 94537

- ALL FUNDS will be used to publish these stories and distribute them for free. 

- ALL FUNDS will be used for outreach to build bridges among Korean-American LGBTQ families, friends, and communities.

***********************************************************************************************

Dari Project is a volunteer-led, grassroots organization that develops resources to increase awareness and acceptance in Korean American communities of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) people of Korean descent. By documenting and sharing the life stories of LGBTQ Koreans, we seek to build bridges among Korean American families, social  networks, institutions and faith communities.

Since its inception in 2006, the Dari Project leadership has dreamed of publishing the first collection of personal narratives of LGBTQ Koreans as a bilingual resource for LGBTQ Koreans and their friends and families, and we're so close to making this dream a reality!

We've solicited 27 stories from members of our community, which represent multiple experiences, including homo/bi/transphobia in Korean American communities, coming out as an LGBTQ person, building relationships with family, and membership in faith communities.  

Thanks to some friends and supporters we’ve been able to get started but we need your help to publish this collection as a bilingual print resource for our community. Your generous contributions will help edit, translate, design, and print our stories this summer.  If we can make our goal of $7000, it will help make this book available for FREE to your friends, families, communities, and people you care about.
