THE STORY:

Dear Friends and Family,

As a proud Korean American mother of a transgender son, I understand the isolation, pain and loneliness felt by our Asian LGBTQ individuals and their parents and families. When I first stumbled on to the Dari Project (우리 다리) website about a year ago, I got really excited and could not wait to read the stories they collected. I heard they collected 27 stories and translated them into both English and Korean. Now it is about to become a book and I urge you to help make that happen!

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, Dari Project seeks 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!  

My personal goal is to raise $500 for the Dari Project with my fundraise efforts. The deadline is November 30, so make your tax-deductible (receipt via email instantly) donation TODAY.

Now, here is a Good News: We have 'Dollar to Dollar Match' sponsorship to match your donation! Your every dollar is matched by an anonymous doner. You can help make it into $1000!

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.

Like us and keep up to date with Dari Project on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/DariProject

Your generous contributions will go towards the following:

*Full Korean and English translation services

*Editing Korean and English Stories

*Publication Design

*Publication Printing

*Dari Project Marketing

But most importantly, providing your friends, family members and allies with FREE copies of the publication to share.
