Being Transgender In Korea

Seoul KOREA REPUBLIC:: "I want to become a person who breaks down boundaries. There are many walls and boundaries in people's hearts and minds that separate them from other people. I want to be a person who breaks down those invisible walls and boundaries," transgender author Kim Bee said at the Empathy Monthly Forum.

After I decided I would write something about her talk, I found myself staring at the blinking cursor for a good hour without writing anything. Her life was too intense and too beautiful to encapsulate on a page. I wanted to write about KIM Bee the person, and not just KIM Bee the transgender author.
