Japan needs a LGBT Anti-Discrimination Law equivalent to
the standards of other industrially-developed countries.
In contemporary Japan, people are bullied and cornered just for being LGBT.
Sexual Orientation or Gender Identity is an innate quality rather than a choice.
Many children who suffer a lack of understanding
from their friends or families feel compelled to
commit suicide. LGBT Anti-Discrimination Laws
have been legislated in developed countries including
all EU members, UK, Australia, and America (in some states).
The United Nations have followed suit, and Anti-Discrimination Laws
are now becoming a global standard.
Developing a diversity-conscious environment supports not only
those children who have difficulties with their sexual orientation or
gender identity, but also other non-LGBT children to become more thoughtful and accepting.
We seek to achieve a LGBT Anti-Discrimination Law
equivalent to the standards of other industrially-developed countries.
LGBT stands for L(Lesbian), G(Gay),
Lesbian refers to women who are attracted to women. Gay refers to men who are attracted to men. Bisexual refers to a person who is attracted to both women and men, or regardless of gender. Transgender refers to a person whose sense of gender identity does not correspond with their birth-assigned sex and wishes to be treated and live by a different gender. A person with strong gender dysphoria could obtain a diagnosis of “gender identity disorder (GID)” and receive medical support, however, not all persons with gender dysphoria wish to access medical treatment.
We advise and evaluate a wide range of policies by referring to past cases, data, views of experts (lawyers, researchers etc.), and track records of cooperation with local governments.
