Jesus steals the show at Seoul Pride in the most brilliant way

Twitter

He’s cool with it.

Pride in Seoul took place this past weekend in the South Korean capital, and early reports suggest that it had its biggest turnout ever.

An estimated 85,000 people took to the streets to celebrate everything LGBT+, despite some rainfall throughout the day.

But amongst the crowd, it’s this picture of a man dressed as Jesus Christ that was shared far and wide online.

Holding up a banner that read “I’m cool with it,” the Pride-goer made sure to stop in front of a protest by conservative Christians.

A few thousand from the group protested Pride taking place across the weekend.

They sang hymns at the Parade marchers, as well as holding group prayers.

“We do not want them to showcase homosexuality in public, which can corrupt the minds of our children,” saidPastor Hong Ho-soo, the secretary general of the Homosexuality Countermeasure Council for Korean Churches.

It did little to dampen the spirits of LGBT+ people and their allies attending Pride though, who proceeded to celebrate love in all its forms.
