While the number of foreign persons that live in Japan is close to 3 million, publicly available information on the social and legal status of LGBTQ rights in Japan is very limited. Lawyers for LGBT and Allies Network (LLAN) will hold a seminar designed to provide the audience with up-to-date information on LGBTQ rights in Japan as well as an introduction to resources available in English. The event is co-sponsored by Shibuya City, a city with the aim to be a mature international city under its motto “Shibuya―turning difference into strength”.
Leading experts on the topic will cover issues on marriage, family, visa and issues faced by transgender in Japan.
