Hi, I'm Korean, and I'm a high school student.
I want to work for LGBT someday.
I don't categorize myself as something.
I mean, I don't feel myself is a boy, nor a girl.
Also, I'm attracted to anybody whether they are.
Though they are gay, lesbian, TG, whatever, I think I can love all of them if I like them.
Is there any person same like me?

In Korea(South), there's some people who want to support LGBTs, but only few of them does.
At my school, ethics teacher said homosexual is not a disease, but a sin. He said it can be cured and explained it by exampling drug addiction...
In korea, A gay man in the army killed himself because of other soldier's violence.
In korea, the town goverment rejected a banner which was about LGBT's right.
In korea, former president said that homosexuality is a disease.

And this is my first writing in here. I wish my English is better so I can explain all the things happening in here.
I'll right again soon.
