Coming Full Circle: The Journey of a Korean Transgendered Adoptee

Pauline Park, a transgender rights activist in New York City, was born into a poor family in post-war Korea. Adopted by white American parents, she left Korea as a 7-month old baby boy and grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. 54 years later, she embarked on a journey of discovering and connecting to her past in Korea. Park, also took the opportunity to share her decades of experience in activism with local LGBTQ groups, including the Seoul Pride Festival.

"Fifty-four years after leaving Korea, [Pauline] Park returned to participate in LGBT pride festival activities in Seoul and to attempt to locate her birth family through a social services agency."
- P. Hall, Video Librarian

"A transracial adoptee, Park reflects on racial and cultural determinants that have shaped her quality of life. This is an excellent film for discussing how the trans- in transgender also relates to the trans- in transnational.”
- C. Riley Snorton, Films for the Feminist Classroom
