Who we are

The Korean Society of Law and Policy on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI) is a group of human rights lawyers and researchers working to advocate LGBTI people, to advance intellectual discussions on SOGI issues, and to bring changes to social and legal policies and systems so as to protect and promote the human rights of LGBTI people in South Korea. Founded in 2011, it has worked on numerous projects including lawsuits for the legal gender recognition of transgender people, survey studies on the lives and needs of LGBTI people and communities, and annual reports on the human rights situation of LGBTI people in South Korea.
