Pro-LGBT posters, often with the line "Arrest me, too" in solidarity with the South Korean military's recent move to track down and punish homosexual soldiers, have appeared at universities across the country.
The movement is believed to have begun at Sogang University on Apr. 20, and posters have since appeared at Gachon University, Dankook University, Daegu University, Pusan National University, Sungshin Women's University, Silla University, and Ewha Womans University, according to the Hankyoreh.
A wall poster at Gachon University said, "The military has tracked down 40 to 50 soldiers just because they were gay. On TV, there's been a torrent of statements that support hatred of sexual minorities."
"Is this really a democratic country?" it asked.
A poster at Sungshin Women's University read: "If gay soldiers are criminals, then the women's university campus couple were also criminals. So arrest us, too."
The posters have been widely shared on social media.
Three of the country's presidential candidates, although failing to stand up for anti-LGBT discrimination laws, have spoken out against the military's "purge" of homosexuals.
Moon Jae-in, who last month made homophobic remarks in a television interview, called the army's hunt for gay soldiers "a violation of human rights."
