韓裔同志社區組織與盟友們共同譴責鄭勝振之恐懼非異性戀者的言論

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: August 31, 2016 Media Contact: Mark Ro Beyersdorf, dariproject@gmail.com, (347) 669-2584 Organizational representatives are available for interviews 韓裔同志社區組織與盟友們共同譴責鄭勝振之恐懼非異性戀者的言論 針對州參議員參選人與韓裔社區領袖鄭勝振於8月29日刊登於紐約每日日報歧視非異性戀者的(同性戀者、雙性戀者、跨性別者、性別認同疑惑者, 英文簡稱LGBTQ)言論,韓裔同志社區組織、韓裔盟友們、以及亞太裔同志社區組織的共同聲明如下: 「鄭勝振對非異性戀族群的守舊看法,對於充滿各色各樣、非異性戀移民族群色彩的皇后區而言是落伍的。 身為韓裔非異性戀組織與其同盟,看見一位對韓裔社區有如此重大貢獻的人物發表對於非異性戀社群、婚姻以及公共教育的偏歧言論,我們深感失望。其從教科書中刪去非異性戀者存在的有害訴求,抹煞了尋求同為非異性戀者和韓裔身份認同的我們和我們家人的存在一樣。 當一個社區領袖,如鄭勝振,發表歧視同志以及跨性別(恐同、恐跨)的言論時,這無疑地將重創社區裡正在掙扎著出櫃的年輕人。身為一位社區領袖,鄭勝振有道德責任為這些年輕非異性戀族群發聲,而不是擴大守舊的偏見。 我們呼籲鄭先生徹底反省其言辭中的有害影響,重新評估他的立場,並與簽署此聲明的組織會面。」 此聲明及通信僅提供教育用途使用,並無黨派立場。不可作為支持或反對任何參選人或其辦公室的資料。 簽署者: API Rainbow Parents of PFLAG NYC (ARP PFLAG NYC) Asian Pride Project Dari Project Gay Asian and Pacific Islander Men of New York (GAPIMNY) Korean Americans […]
