Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals of conservative and traditional communities are especially vulnerable to discrimination, isolation, fear, and other mental health disparities. Korean and Korean American LGBT communities are largely invisible given the conservative and traditional nature of the Korean culture as well as their prevalent involvement with the Christian community that has traditionally been unreceptive to homosexuality. This curriculum was developed for Korean American pastors who are leaders and counselors in Korean and Korean American communities. The curriculum contains materials for three sessions, providing information and education on LGBT experiences and related topics, as well as discussion questions that begin or continue dialogue about LGBT individuals and how best to support and care for them. The curriculum also includes instructions for facilitators with background information and directions to best provide sessions promoting successful involvement from participants.
