The Media Representation of Korean Sexual Minority and Gender Oppression in 1960-70s

Dae Hyun Kim

During the 1950s-1970s in Korea, transgenderism was not fully considered as sexual identity, so it was not often distinguished from homosexual or transvestite. Examining press releases of the time, we can see FTM (Female to Male) transgenders, or female transvestites, had various career such as robber, swindler, even legislator, while majority of MTF (Male to Female) transgenders, or male transvestites, were prostitutes. This shows social reality related to gender difference of the time.
